The Daily Planet is 72 feet tall, and its placement — wedged against the side of a downtown building in Raleigh, North Carolina, as if it rolled there — somehow makes it look even more colossal. The globe is a hollow steel ball covered in hi-res satellite photos of the Earth.

Not only bees and butterflies, but also people visit sunflowers.
First planted by the City of Raleigh’s public utilities department in 2010 along the Neuse River Greenway Trail, a beautiful five-acre batch of sunflowers blooms each year between early- and mid-July. For 2019, they once again called Dorothea Dix Park home.
The sunflowers serve a purpose beyond just acting as a fun summer photo hot-spot—the City harvests the sunflowers to create thousands of gallons of bio diesel, which is then processed into fuel to run tractors, trailers and farm equipment. The flowers are also excellent pollinators—the field serves as a massive pollinator habitat for bees and other species.
