Daffodil Days are from April 10 to May 2, 1010. I have visited many museums, but this one welcomes you with an amazing warmth and the love that was once in this home prevails to this day. Lovely home movies are shown in the drawing room of this wonderful family.

These photos are just lovely, just lovely. We are still in grayness here, but I have hope that soon, we will be seeing our grape hyacynthes (Spelling!!!) and daffodils. Thank you for always giving us hope and dreams in your lovely posts....Anita
