The logo for the new Frontier Festival has a sunflower in the center.

Was this to tie in with Prayers From Maria, or simply a coincidence?

Very cool! I had passed the field on Chester Rd in Avon and thought it was neat, but, never knew the story until this past winter. Good for CP!

This is a great idea! Awesome of CP to support this great cause! Being summer is the season for sunflowers, it will be an attraction itself. Will get much attention, given the heavy traffic going to and from the park. Plus, a nice detail to the revitalization of the main road entrance area.
