After attending the Arkansas Farm Bureau Women's Conference in Little Rock this weekend, Mother and I headed west for a little mother-daughter Arkansas adventure. For the past couple of years, we had talked about going to see the daffodils at Wye Mountain. It seemed the perfect opportunity for this pre-spring adventure to see the daffodils in bloom.
Although Wye Mountain is only twenty-six miles from Little Rock, you quickly enjoy the rural flavor of this Arkansas community when driving up to the small Wye United Methodist Church surrounded by the seven acres of yellow daffodils.
We were astounded by the number of people that had come to enjoy these yellow beauties.
People were everywhere--blankets spread on the ground,children in their Easter outfits having pictures made, and couples just strolling around enjoying the day.
Although there is no charge to visit the field, you can make a donation or spend a little money at the craft barn full of Arkansas handmade items or purchase your favorite food at the concession stand. I made a contribution by purchasing a 'What's Cooking at Wye' cookbook sold by the women of the Wye United Methodist Church.
Our visit to Wye Mountain was a memorable experience and
it was definintely a perfect mother-daughter Arkansas adventure!
