The Daffodil Bloom (over 60,000 bulbs!) happens in late winter to spring. Here's the article from last year to see what's in store. After you visit us, look at the old Schoolhouse on Shenandoah Schoolhouse Road, and check out up high in the old snag for some wayward blooms. Afterward, see Main Street Fiddletown for the 5,000 bulbs local garden clubs planted in 2010! Daffodil Hill blooms a bit off our schedule, so it gives bulb lovers another reason to visit! More plantings next year again...

The Steiner Road Daffodils (click there to read about the wineries & 4-H planting them) got a nice mention from Rick Cushman at the Sacramento Bee in his March 26, 2009 article. A day later, a wonderful writeup in the Jackson Rancheria's Arrow Magazine came out. A week later, Mike wrote an article for the Gold Country Times. (See links at the bottom of the page.) Did you come out and see the daffodils, narcissus, jonquils and paperwhites? If you missed them, click the links to see pictures of the 2009 bloom.
