Daffodil Picking

You may remember that I mentioned in this blog post that we went daffodil picking a couple of weekend’s ago. It’s just the beginning of Spring over here in the Southern Hemisphere and it’s been lovely to see a few signs of it’s arrival – daffodils, blossom and a few Spring lambs, plus a bit more sunshine of course! (Although it’s still early days for that, layering is still required!)

Such was the case when we went daffodil picking. It was a beautifully sunny day which I convinced myself was warm enough for shorts. Fortunately I had the good sense to pack the kid’s coats because it was a little chilly in the shade and there was a bit of a cool wind. We packed a picnic and drove down to Taniwha fields. It’s a privately owned, working farm that the family open up to the public for a few weeks each Spring for the purpose of daffodil picking. You can pick 30 flowers for $5 and the money raised goes to Plunket – such a great cause!

All in all it was a fun family day out! (And they sell good espresso coffee too!)
