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
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. 
When visiting please respect the
beauty that is offered for your enjoyment.  Please do not sit on, walk on
or pick the daffodils.  Please do not litter while you are here.

 First Monday Trade days Again!! Yes at the end of February it is Feb 26 thru March 1! 
 T ALL BEGAN … in the 1850′s when the circuit judge stopped in Canton
on the FIRST MONDAY of each month. This was the day the Judge held
court. People from the area came to town on that day to conduct their
business, stock their pantries and sit in on court proceedings … and
watch a few “hangings”. History relates one incident where a man was
hung for stealing his partner’s wagon of goods for trading. He is buried
facing south (not east) in Hillcrest Cemetery by the First Monday


Quite naturally, many also brought their own goods, produce and
livestock with them to sell or trade. This took place just off the west
side of the courthouse square. Most history versions include the trading
of wild hosrses, which were rounded up in the region and brought to
Canton to sell.
By 1965, FIRST MONDAY had outgrown the Town Square, It was then that
the City of Canton purchased six acres just two blocks north of the
courthouse. FIRST MONDAY was moved off the square.
Originally, FIRST MONDAY only “happened” on the first Monday of each
month. However, if you take a look NOW at the calendar, you will note
that Monday has been excluded.
Even though the event goes from Thursday – Sunday, the name is now and will forever be known as: FIRST MONDAY TRADE DAYS.

  Well that about does it for now. This is by no means all that is going on-Tyler is full of live music venues all over town and there is so much more-
But in the meantime-don’t forget to make your reservation soon-Valentines Day is coming up
