It Must Be Spring!

Nothing says spring like a trip to Daffodil Days.  My sister and I made our yearly trek to a winery a little over an hour from home.  Daffodil Days officially starts tomorrow.  We always go the day before when there are fewer people around and less exposure to chemicals and fragrances from all those people who bathe themselves in chemicals.  Last year I posted pictures in my post entitled How I spent my “Be Kind to Yourself” Day.  It was during this trip and photos we took that I found the photo for the back cover of Allergic to Life.

We had thought about making the drive further to Daffodil Hill like last year. The wild daffodils on the hills near the winery were scarce and spent.  We made the wise decision of foregoing the drive there this year.

There is nothing more uplifting and soothing than beautiful flowers and a long overdue day out with my sister.  I hope you enjoy these beautiful flowers as much as we did.

How I spent my “Be Kind to Yourself” Day

My sister and I left my house at 9:30 this morning and headed up to the mountains to the little town of Murphys and the Ironestone Winery to look at daffodils.  This weekend starts the St. Patrick’s Day festival in town and the Daffodil Days at the winery.

Then we drove further north to a place called Daffodil Hill.  I had never been there before.  Acres of daffodils.

We got home at almost 8:00 p.m. tonight.  Wonderful, wonderful day.
