Eau Claire (WQOW)- Babbette’s Seeds of Hope is opening a little later than previous years due to the cool, wet spring.

Friday the public will be able to enjoy the maze of sunflowers for the first time this year.

Four years ago, Babbette’s Seeds of Hope was started to honor Babbette Jaquish, who died after a long battle with multiple myeloma.

The nonprofit plants the sunflowers and creates a maze that reads “Seeds of Hope.”

Jill Schoen, Babbette’s daughter said this is a great way to pay tribute to her mom.

“It is a good feeling,” said Schoen. “It is giving back to the community and it is a nice way to honor our mother.”

Schoen said the maze will be open Friday through Labor Day.

The maze is free, but they accept donations to fund other cancer patients and organizations.
