Daffodil Hill is in bloom

Daffodils are blooming sooner than usual because of drought and showers late last month. The family farm opened to the public Monday.

Stephenee Molson and her boyfriend Robert Reed, both of Sacramento, enjoy the beauty of fresh blossoms Tuesday that arrived earlier than usual this year at Daffodil Hill in Volcano thanks to recent rains that interrupted the region’s drought.

The popular springtime attraction, which normally opens in mid-March, opened earlier this week because of the warm, sunny weather.

Daffodil Hill’s operators warned that any adverse weather such as severe heat, rain or snow could bring closure.

But for now, the hill may be visited 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., seven days a week. Admission and parking are free, though donations are appreciated. Picnic lunches are encouraged. Pets are not allowed on the hill, but may remain in the parking lot.
