Taniwha Daffodils 🌼

Every year in Spring and over the month of September a local family open up their homestead 🏡 to the community with an amazing display of scenery, it’s called Taniwha Daffodils 🌼

The Maben Family have been doing this for years. This is our 12th year out there, picking daffodils and walking around the grounds enjoying the scenery.

Taniwha Daffodils is located on SH2 just outside Waipukurau going towards Dannevirke. From the 1st to 30th September every year you can stop in and have a stroll, picnic and even a cuppa. Makes an awesome family day out!! It doesn’t cost you anything except a few bunches of daffodils.

Did you know that they have over 400 different types of daffodils there.? Pretty cool fact!! Also there is a picture of the Karate in the bathrooms when he was a baby in a Freedom Photography shoot. We did this shoot years ago obviously but so cool to see our wee man on the wall!!

My kids love it there. Miss Highland Dancer and the Karate Kid enjoy their annual photo 🎥 shoot and so do I!! I take the moments when I can!! 💕🌼

There is an amazing 🌳 tree house 🏠 , tyre swing, old trees which are great for climbing, muddy puddles, a pond with swans 🦢 and ducks 🦆 and did I say the scenery is breathtaking??

I can tell you that the Karate Kid has a had few swims in the pond over the years and we even lost his gumboots (wellies) one year when he sank into the mud!! Ah , the memories!!

Shucks, if you haven’t been there, it’s definitely worth a visit!! Well I will leave you a few more pics of this years day out in our local community!! Our little country is an amazing place!!
