Take This Day Trip To The Most Eye-Popping Daffodil Fields In Rhode Island
Despite that recent late season snowfall, we’re starting to see early signs of spring here in Rhode Island. Luckily, that means it won’t be long before the daffodils are blooming all over Blithewold, a regal garden estate in Bristol. Daffodils are often the first flowers to bloom in the spring, and those vibrant, colorful beauties are a wonderful sight after a long, dreadful winter.
This April, head to Blithewold for Daffodil Days, an almost ethereal experience after meant to welcome spring.
The Blithewold Estate is elegant and regal, one of the most fully-developed and intact examples of the Country Place Era in the United States.
The mansion is beautiful, but it's the gardens and arboretums that keep people coming back.
Blithewold is one of the finest garden estates in New England, if not the country.
Stroll around and you'll see diverse gardens, trees, and beautiful flowers.
Daffodil season begins early in the spring, with dozens of varieties popping up by April.
And while the daffodil's season is short, there's no denying it's magnificent.
Blithewold has seven different gardens, each with a varietal of flower, rocks, or vegetable and herb.
Other points of interest are Lovers' Lane and Bamboo Grove, which was planted in the 1930s.
Each April, the estate hosts Daffodil Days, opening its gates to help visitors say hello to spring.
This year's Daffodil Days begins April 9, with daily admission until May 16.
There are over 50,000 daffodils scattered around this stunning seaside estate.
Daffodils are like Mother Nature's ambassadors, greeting us and welcoming us to spring.
Blithewold was named in Yankee Magazine's Best 5 Public Gardens in New England in 2010.
When you visit, we think you'll agree it was an award that was well-earned.
This year’s Daffodil Days will probably look different than in years past. To learn more about it, check out Blithewold’s
