Delightful Daffodils...

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd, 
A host, of golden daffodils...
-William Wordsworth

Visit the Children's Garden right away to see our lovely new daffodils in bloom!  Over 1,000 daffodil bulbs were donated to the Carolina Children's Garden by Jenks Farmer of Lushlife Nurseries (www.jenksfarmer.com) earlier this spring.  Volunteers planted them throughout the garden--around the perimeter of Mr. McGregor's Garden, along the fence at the Three Bears' Homestead, and in the pine straw borders of the Butterfly and Bird gardens.

Bend close to experience their lovely fragrance! 

...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.
-William Wordsworth
