Daffodils in Twin Peaks ~ They think It's Time to Wake up

Today, on my way home, I noticed that our Twin Peaks daffodils are popping up! We've had some warmDaffodils in Twin Peaks weather lately and I assume they are confused. ;-)  So, as you're driving down Hwy 189 through Twin Peaks, be on the look out for our little yellow and while beauties. (As of right now, they're about four inches high).

The little story below makes our daffodils even more special

Tom and Julie Greer married in 1978 and made the tiny town of Twin Peaks (one of Lake Arrowhead's surrounding areas) home. Since one of Julie's favorite flowers was the sweet, bright daffodil, in 1999 she decided to plant several hundred of those darling flowers (bulbs). She accomplished her first plantings with help from a neighbor.

One of Julie's dreams was to see all of Twin Peaks filled Daffodils in Twin Peakswith her beloved daffodils. The next year she purchased 1000 daffodils bulbs and she & Tom planted them! In 2000, another 10,000. Julie's dream became Julie's Project.

Sadly, in July 2001, breast cancer took Julie's life.

Tom made it his mission to somehow keep Julie's Project alive and, thankfully, with the help and donations from many wonderful people, he has been able to do just that. As you drive through Twin Peaks along Highway 189, look for the short, staked signs that read In Memory of Cancer Victims. Please Enjoy The View. ... The Julie Greer Project. 

Daffodils are only around a few weeks (usually) in April. If  you'd like to see this wonderful "project," you'll need to get on up here soon... Map & Directions.
