This spring, Blithewold's gardens once again come to life as fifty thousand daffodils, early blooming bulbs, trees and shrubs are coaxed from winter slumber to enchant guests with their quiet beauty and subtle scents during the annual Daffodil Days celebration held from April 10 - May 2nd, 2010.

Along with the wonderful display in the gardens, Daffodil Days offers special exhibits and activities for the whole family to enjoy. Click here for calendar of events.
