Tyler Texas Bed and Breakfast-The Rosevine Inn-The Best in East Texas

Innkeeper Rose Vine Inn Bed & Breakfast
I want to feature same really nice things in the area. Spring seems to be wanting to bust out. Our Tulip Tree is blooming, the azalea bushes are heavy with unopened blooms. The daffodils are so happy looking!!
Hope everyone had a great Mardi Gras and Valentine Day. They were right on the heels of each other, were they not? Well, hopefully, old man winter has gone to bed here in Texas. You never know when we could get a one or two day snowstorm-bu we all know it will not last!! Let’s get started–

The First thing I want to feature is the neatest thing around this time of year

Most people have never heard of it… yet those who have, believe it is a private paradise tucked away among the East Texas landscape. It is considered to be the best kept secret in East Texas. Mrs. Lee’s Garden is a 816-acre tract of land that is drastically transformation every February and March. Each spring the acreage becomes a golden haven of beauty. Millions of golden daffodils, scattered over approximately 28 acres, begin to bloom. Visitors can see all the beauty by traveling along a four-mile trail that meanders around two lakes, between wooded valleys, and around a replica pioneer log cabin. It is a sight that leaves visitors in absolute awe.

Within the boundaries of this 918-acre farm is a lesson of history, a sermon on the wonders of God’s nature and much beauty for people to see. Due to the hard work, patience and love of Mrs. Lee, for her God, her country and her fellowman, to be able to add to the beauty of nature for all to enjoy as much as she did.
The garden opens, depending on Mother Nature, around the middle of February and remains open through March or until the daffodils are no longer in bloom. The garden’s ability to open depends upon two things:
Road conditions- it is closed when the roads are wet.

The garden’s future ability to remain open depends upon the number of people who visit and register their attendance.
The garden is open during this time seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.. For Road Conditions and predicted blooming schedule, contact the Mrs. Lee’s Daffodil Gardens directly at (903)845-5780 or email johnso7670@aol.com .
 Read the blog to the end. i am going to end with a great poem that reminds you of this garden!!

Pierce Pettis: Live, Original, Acoustic Music

•Saturday, February 16th, 2013 @ 7:00pm
Pierce Pettis, adored by critics and public alike, is one of this generation’s most masterful songwriters.
His music is distinguished by his uncanny ability to capture the common elements in human experience by drawing on the humor and trials in daily life.
Pierce’s music can simultaneously pull on our hearts and keep us laughing. His beautiful harmonies, inventive percussion, strong guitar, and rich vocals are constants throughout his body of work.

After a lifetime of crafting finely-wrought, heart-touching songs, singer-songwriter Pierce Pettis feels that he’s finally found his comfort zone. “The biggest change,” he says of this point in his career “has been getting over myself and realizing this is a job and a craft. And the purpose is not fame and fortune (whatever that is) but simply doing good work.”
