Daffodil Day..


Happy April!  We took a drive out to the in-laws last night. 


They live in a small farming town named Bradner.  Did you know there are 2000 varieties of daffodils.  What!?  200 maybe, 2000!

a short walk down the street brought us to the free pick field.
A free pick field? Seriously? Where am I?...
 

This is my sweet niece Jadyn who was loading up for her teacher and being my adorable model.


                


Yes, I'm serious, they are all free for the picking.  And believe me, we picked!


It's a sweet little community.  I love their corner store/gas station. 
It seems like something you'd see in Mayberry.

Free daffodils! It doesn't seem right in this consumerist world. But what a lovely, lovely thing to do.

Hello Heather ~I've just strolled in for my first visit...I've enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts. You've got so many wonderful ideas. Your blog is so beautifully inviting.
We share similar taste for so many of the same creative design elements.

As spring approaches I like to apply it's inspirational palette of colors into a few DIY decorations and gifts, with a little baking/cooking in between.
Don't you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
It's definitely invigorating.
Sweet wishes,
Sara

Oh, perhaps you should go back to lift your sadness from the pony and the mean old neighbor... Maybe they'll have tulips free for the picking now..?

Sending you a big hug, dear.
