Sunflowers in West Frankfort



West Frankfort, Illinois is looking extra sunny lately, despite all the rain. Farmer Dan Melvin has a field just outside of town that is blooming with giant sunflowers, some almost seven feet tall. Melvin expanded his flower field this year, and it is drawing visitors who wish to enjoy the beautiful view. Melvin grows the flowers every year, but this has been his best turnout. The public is invited to come out and look at the sunny fields located at 2259 Melvin Road just outside of West Frankfort.
