Spring daffodils


Every year we head over to the Daffodil Farm off Highway 34, here in the Willamette Valley, to pick some wonderful daffodils and jonquils to brighten up our house for the spring season.  The Daffodil Farm isn't something popular to many people around the Willamette Valley, but I think it's the most wonderful field of yellows and whites.  We just love how beautiful the colors are and it helps to bring us out of the funk of the gray, wet winter season.  

  

  





  




  


  

Although this is a smaller farm, there are daffodil farms throughout that offer a spectacular wow factor when it comes to bringing in spring each year.


The original daffodil border was begun in 2003. Added onto in consecutive years, it stretches from Girdle Ridge all the way down Maple Avenue past the stable, ending at the Japanese maple grove.

This is about two-thirds of the way down.

Her daffodils are always something to envy.

Of course I had to give props to the gardener that lives in Arkansas.

Check out our Daffodil Farm visit from 2012 and 2013 here. (Unfortunately, 2014 was a rainy year and we didn't get a chance to go because of the rain flooding the farm.) :(
