Families have flocked to a north Norfolk farm to bask in the brilliance of thousands of sunflowers.
Westgate Farm in Great Walsingham is holding its first-ever pick-your-own sunflower weekend (July 30-31).
Partners Michael Landale and Sophie Ollerenshaw run the farm.
Ms Ollerenshaw said around 150 people visited on the first day of the open weekend and they expected a similar number on the Sunday.
She said: "We had feedback saying was so nice to be outside in the fresh air, picking your own sunflowers.
"We know some other farms do it, but the people were saying there was nothing else like it up here. They were commenting on the scale as well - we have 12 acres."
The fields were planted from around 600,000 sunflower seeds.
