Lee Wilson, a Pratt, Kansas farmer wanted to do something special to celebrate his and his wife Renee's 50th wedding anniversary.

"What's a guy get his gal for the 50th," Lee asked himself. "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 I planted her 80 acres of sunflowers."

That is 1.2 million sunflowers! Fields of gold, for their golden wedding anniversary.

How did he do this?

Assisted by their son, he and Lee secretly cultivated this field over the past three months.

How did it make Renee feel when she saw it? "It made me feel very special. It couldn't have been a more perfect anniversary gift than a field of sunflowers."

And these magnificent flowers were reflective of the Wilsons special relationship, for they have been together most of their lives.

"She couldn't date until she was 16," said Lee. "And I called her on her 16th birthday, and that's when we started dating. Our first date was a roller-skating party."

And for Lee, that was it. On that first date, he knew she was "the one."

August 10th was their wedding anniversary, and for weeks afterward, people came from all over to see these magnificent fields of gold.

But this will not be an annual sunflower show. "It's been fun but I think one time is enough," said Lee. "It's somebody else's turn next year."
