Kautz Winery hosts Daffodil Days each spring in Murphys. Millions of them pop up along the vineyards and roadside leading up to the winery. Buckets and barrels of flowering bulbs surround the tasting room and patios. The cool spring has been especially beneficial to the daffodils, encouraging them to hold their blossoms longer than usual. There is still time to see them before they fade. The celebration includes a competiton for best showing of daffodils. The blossoms are picked and displayed in vases at the winery and will remain for the rest of the week for viewing although the judging was finished on Sunday last. Its positively amazing how many different and exotic varieties of daffodils are grown and admired. Come see!
