With such a special occasion, Lee thought of presenting something grand to his spouse and proposed planting sunflowers. He enlisted the help of his son and secretly sowed sunflower seeds on 80 acres of land in May. He made sure that Renee was unaware of his plan.

Lee said that he got the gift because his wife has always loved sunflowers, also the official state flower of Kansas.

"We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on August 10, and you know what a man gives his girlfriend on 50th anniversary? And I thought it through, and she's always loved sunflowers," he says.

"And I thought this is the year to plant sunflowers, so I planted 80 acres of sunflowers for her," he added.

The farmer said he planted about 1.2 million sunflowers in his field, which means 15,000 flowers per hectare.

Lee's efforts paid off when he won Renee's heart. He said he could not have gotten a more perfect birthday present.

"It made me feel very special. There is no more perfect birthday present than a field of sunflowers," Renee says.

"We met in high school. She couldn't date until she was 16, and I contacted her on her 16th birthday and that's when we started dating," says Lee.

Now, Lee's sunflowers impress his wife and attract people from all over the state to take pictures in this beautiful field.
