Wildflowers: Spring Beauty

Wildflowers: Spring Beauty

I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am enjoying the outdoors! As you may have seen in the Daffodil Gazette, most of our daffodils around the Township are finishing their blooms…with a few late daffs hanging on. However, the Park Board decided to stick to the posted schedule for the Daffodil Walks for the next two weekends so everyone can enjoy the other numerous blooming plants throughout town.

Our walks have been a huge success! So what is blooming now? Wildflowers! Lilacs! Tulips! And, yes…some daffodils!

Enjoy!!

Wonderful Walks!

We have had some absolutely beautiful Daffodil Walks this spring! We have had a marvelous turnout for every walk ~ what a wonderful time visiting with friends and neighbors as we enjoy the great outdoors. I just HAD to share some photos I took over the weekend on the Saturday walks. Enjoy!

Oh, and the Park Board will decide about the rest of the Daffodil Walks this spring. Please check the Daffodil Gazette for an update on the status of the rest of the walks for this spring.

Daffodils are everywhere these days, aren’t they? I hope you’re not sick of seeing them … or pictures of them … because I simply HAD to share some photos! As I was passing by Vintage Violet yesterday Lauralee called me in because she knew I didn’t have many pink daffodils growing in my gardens. Look what she gave me! Aren’t they gorgeous? I know this lovely bouquet includes one called Pink Charm, but I can’t remember some of the other names. Like many Daffodilians, Lauralee and Tanner order many of their new bulbs in bulk from Van Engelen, Inc. I was just perusing the website and found several I want to add to my wish list for the fall! Lauralee said she wants to try a pink split cup narcissus for next year ~ sounds beautiful!

Enjoy your day! Hope to see you at one or more of the Daffodil Walks! 🙂

What beautiful Daffodil Walks we’ve been having in the Township! tomorrow should be another banner day for the walks! Our morning walk starts at Red Oak one block down from Main AND I am so pleased to be hosting Saturday’s park walk in the Memorial Gardens of Smith & Smith Funeral Services.

Many of you know that this business has been in my family for generations – and the Memorial Garden has been part of it since the beginning. It is a beautiful experience to walk among the memorials of our ancestors, knowing that we continue their traditions and carry their values with us.

The Park Walk begins at 9:30AM and the Residential Walk begins at 6:00PM. If you haven’t seen the daffodils in Daffodil Township yet you don’t know what you’re missing. They are stunning!

Happy Spring, Everyone!! 🙂
