Thera Lou’s Field

Daffodils carpet the ground around a 113 year old pecan.

The 'Incomparabilis' daffodils were in full bloom.

Last week I was fortunate enough to be able to ramble about looking at daffodils for a few days.

I toured some lovely private gardens but on Wednesday evening I visited two public displays in Louisiana.

First I toured Caroline Dormon’s home, Briarwood.  I promise to write more about Briarwood one day soon.

I then traveled on to Thera Lou Adam’s wonderful daffodil planting near Winnfield, LA.

Isn't this a lovely Louisiana scene?

Thera Lou’s field is a memorial to her husband Nelton Adams.

For 51 weeks each year, Thera Lou works to maintain the site.

On one weekend, the planting is open for public viewing.

The H. Nelton Adams Daffodil Field is quite stunning.

Tomorrow is the last day it will be open for viewing this year.  If you live in the area, make the effort and get out to see the fruition of Thera Lou’s efforts.  Click on the link above for more information.

I know that I will remember my visit to Thera Lou’s for quite some time.  I’ll end this post with a quote from William Wordsworth

“… For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.”
