A Host of Golden Daffodils!

Oh what a glorious Saturday my sisters and I enjoyed on a 10 hour outing north to Mount Vernon and La Conner and then beyond to Whidbey Island over Deception Pass and south the whole length of the island. In this post I’m showing the fields of daffodils we enjoyed. But…first things first, when visiting tulip or daffodils fields it is good to don your mud boots!

I was happy to be able to come up with 3 pairs of good mucking boots/shoes and borrowed the fourth pair from our DIL.

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;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

William Wordsworth

It was great to have leisurely time together to share about the challenges my oldest sister faces in caring for our dear old pop and the life changes my sister Vera faces in widowhood and moving out of the home she shared with her husband Nick. It’s good to let the tears roll freely and also to be able to laugh heartily with each other. Just for the record…we sisters have four brothers, too.

  1. Your Sister Time just gets better and better! I have always wanted to see those fields of daffodils. Perhaps this year I’ll make it down for the tulips!

  2. Ellen, how fun to see you here. And YOU are the Mennonite girls? Oh, my! Our hearts are in the same place, and I’ve wanted to meet you all! Your photos are taken just around the corner from my home.

    Do come back for tulips soon and I would love to say hello in person. And a slice of pie, maybe?

    • Hi Sharyn, I am one of the 10 Mennonite Girls. The only U.S. Girl and the only non-Mennonite. They adopted me because of our Russian connections. So nice to meet you. Blessings!
