Mrs. Lee's Daffodil Garden

We LOVE this place. It has quickly become one of our favorite spring traditions.

As I've mentioned on here before, daffodils are my very favorite flower. So you can imagine how I feel about going to visit a garden full of acres and acres of these buttery yellow, glowing gems!

Here's a preview:

We may or may not have gotten a little bit lost on the way to the garden. It's quite possible that we took a little tour of many of the small towns in East Texas before we got there since I was SURE that I could find it without using a GPS. For the sake of my dignity, I'll just pretend that we drove straight there, as that was the plan. :)

I got to spend the afternoon with these two...who are more beautiful inside than out, if you can believe it. What wonderful friends God has blessed me with!


I took more than a few picture of the kids. Before we left I tried to get a picture of me with the kids similar to one I had taken last year. I just love seeing how much they've grown and changed over the past year! Here's this year's...

And you can click over to see last year's here.

And the year before here. Bridget was SO LITTLE here! Oh, my.

Here's just one picture of the glorious goodness that is a field of daffodils! (There are more pictures on facebook if you want to see them there.)

God blessed us with a beautiful day and the sunshine just made those flowers GLOW. Love it. So thankful. He rocks. :)

I'm so glad I got to see it with y'all! I also love your undisclosed information about the amount of time it took to get there vs the amount of time it took to get back :) It confirmed that the iphone GPS isn't good, my generation doesn't know how to use a map and we should have listened to the 4 year old in the back who told us the right direction! It was a blast though and a great memory!
