Seedling Garden Club visits daffodil gardens


After receiving an invitation from Kaye Stephens to visit her daffodil garden, the Seedling Garden Club traveled to Adrian on the spring-like morning of February 20, 2023, to visit the gardens. First sight to greet the members was the beautiful, white farmhouse surrounded by blooming daffodils. It looked like a picture out of Southern Living Magazine.

Members were met and welcomed by Kaye Stephens and her beautiful, playful dogs. Stephens started the tour by viewing the bank of the ditch covered in blooming daffodils of every color. The next stop was the small garden room, which caught everyone's eye. It was staged like a small room sitting room surrounded by pots of daffodils. The pergola with a hanging swing, made everyone want to stop, relax, and enjoy the sights and feel the cool breeze. It provided a quiet, peaceful feeling all around you. Stephens has planted over 200 daffodils in tasteful sections throughout the yard. The variety of yellow, King Alford, and the white, Ice Folly, gave a dramatic impression.

She tends to her garden herself and explains how she cares for them, not using much fertilizer. Other herbs, shrubs, and the beautiful blooming Japanese Magnolia (tulip tree), added to the landscape of the yard.

Members left the daffodil gardens inspired to go and work in their yards. Stephens was a very gracious hostesses and the club thanks her for the invitation to visit such a breath-taking place. Only God could paint a picture this perfect and pretty. Upon departure, members were given daffodil bulbs to plant and enjoy and remember the wonderful trip. Maybe this is a sign, Spring is on its way.
