Neighbors say the Pope Farm Conservancy will be lacking a little shine this summer without the sunflowers.

"They are so beautiful and peaceful," Jerri Marks said.

Marks lives on Blackhawk Road near the farm. The flowers can be seen from her backyard. She says she was sad when Friends of the Pope Farm Conservancy announced last week that they weren't holding Sunflower Days.

Their statement said: "It is with deepest regret that we must announce the cancellation of FOPFC Sunflower Days 2018 due to safety concerns."

The Town of Middleton Administrator says they are currently reviewing options to try and make Sunflower Days still happen.

"I hope they replant them because it really would be a loss for the community," Marks said.
