I am from a very small town in Louisiana—the Town of Gibsland. A small township with a big festival every March. The Jonquil Jubilee centers around the beautiful fields of jonquils, beautiful yellow, white, and orange flowers. Daffodils.
The festival consists of vendors, food, house tour, driving tours, games, and genuine small-town hospitality.
My parents have an 1848 antebellum house that is on tour this year. That is where I will be with my parents, husband, sisters, daughter, and niece. It is a lot of work preparing the house and grounds for the tour, but so worth the effort to share a little of the beauty of the unique history and the gardens.
Enjoy the pictures of our field of jonquils—Sally’s Field, named for my mother.
Happy Jonquil Jubilee!
