David Bell Daffodil Farm12 September

It was a perfect Spring morning driving to Leeston, the sun was shining on the snow-capped alps, the lambs were frolicking in the paddocks and the countryside looked green and lush. A special time of year with so much renewed life, and a time to reflect on the beauty that surrounds us in Canterbury.

Our hosts June & Stu McLachlan and the committee of the Springston Evening Garden Club gave us a warm welcome followed by a scrumptious morning tea in June’s colourful garden before we drove to the paddocks of daffodils to commence picking. Whilst the daffodils were not a great show of colour due to the lateness of the season, there were plenty for all sixty of us to pick and take home.  A most enjoyable Spring morning was had by all.
