Billions and Billions of Daffodilions

That's what our day nurse said, anyway. Last week we had a chance to go to a local daffodil garden that was started by a lady sometime in the 1800s, when she had an entire railcar of daffodil bulbs shipped in to her eight acres of land. They were planted, and have subsequently multiplied over the years, and now there are truly billions and billions. We took Dakin out to see them, and you can imagine his pleasure to see so many yellow ('la la') flowers.. We tried to get some good pics, but the terrain was pretty rugged so we didn't get too many--we were busy trying to help Dakin not fall out of his chair while joking about him going where no handicapped child had gone before...anyhoo.

Appropriately wearing a shirt that said, 'Boys will be boys.' This is the raspberry face.


As you can see, it was a beautiful day, and I'm glad Jane suggested the trip. We got to go to Chili's for lunch too, back to the wonderful one where they are so accomodating. Good day.
