For me, sunflowers are more than just flowers. With its bright yellow color, it brings so much happiness, positivity that reminds us to look on the brighter side of everything. Sunflower farms are now starting to emerge as one of the known tourist attractions around the country. One of them can be found just 2-3 hours away from Manila! You can now visit the Sunshine Farm PH located in Tiaong, Quezon to get a chance to see these happy flowers.
