American Farmer Lee Wilson Surprises Wife Renee With 80 Acres Of Sunflowers For 50th Wedding Anniversary

Lee and Renee Wilson are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Aug. 10.

Lee Wilson decided not just to get an average bouquet of flowers, but a whole 80 acres of sunflowers. That equals about 1.2 million sunflowers, according to Wilson.

“We’re celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary Aug. 10 and you know, what’s a guy get his gal on their 50th? And I put a lot of thought into it and she always liked sunflowers and I thought this is the year to plant sunflowers so we planted her 80 acres of sunflowers,” Lee said.

Lee teamed up with his son to plant the striking flowers back in May and they managed to keep it all a secret from Renee.

The sunflower field has now sprouted into a glorious sea of sunny-yellow blooms off the south side of Highway 54, four miles outside of Pratt, Kansas, where the they live. The eye-catching display has drawn crowds who want to catch a glimpse of the big blooms, which also happen to be Kansas’ state flower.

“It made me feel very special. It couldn’t have been a more perfect anniversary gift than a field of sunflowers,” Renee told KAKE.

The Wilsons have been together since high school and Lee said their first date was a roller-skating party, when he knew she was likely “the one” for him.
