Spring Flowers

Today is the first day of Spring, and what’s Spring without flowers?
To get an early start on the season, we drove out west of Junction City last Sunday to The Long Tom Grange Hall to see their annual Daffodil Drive Festival.

Each year the third weekend in March thousands of visitors from Eugene, Springfield, Corvallis, and beyond flock to Ferguson Road in Junction City to view mile after county mile of golden daffodils and enjoy a day of family activities. Over the years the festival has grown from one day to two, adding new features each year.

Free entertainment, a classic car display, wagon rides, art show, cinnamon rolls, quilt displays, craft booths, and of course, all the daffodils are just a few of the things that draw people of all ages.

Anna brought her camera and took pictures too.

As you can see, she’s getting better at centering and focusing.

But as good as she’s getting with a camera, she still likes posing for pictures the best.
