Daffodil Time in Twin Peaks and surrounding Lake Arrowhead Area
“The Twin Peaks Daffodil Story”
Springtime in the Lake Arrowhead communities means daffodil time in Twin Peaks! Thousands and thousands of the beautiful little yellow flowers. Where did they all come from, you ask? Well, it is a wonderful story of love and dedication. It all started in the fall of 1999 when Julie Greer planted a few bulbs. Daffodils were her favorite flower and she loved the sunshine that they brought. She was battling breast cancer. In 2000 she raised enough money to plant 1,000 more. Sadly she lost her battle in 2001, but her project lived on through her husband, Tom. He continued to plant bulbs…a whole lot of bulbs in her memory. Our wonderful neighbor Tom, has since remarried but continues her legacy with his wife Tricia (which is no small chore).
You will see small signs that say “In Memory of Julie Geer” and “Please Don’t Pick the Daffodils”

Daffodils are planted each year in the fall.
Now over 80,000 daffodil bulbs have been planted.
When you drive up HWY 189, we hope you’ll enjoy the legacy of our wonderful neighbor. Julie smiles through her flowers every spring!
We have a great Spring Break special for those of you who can come up and stay with us. It’s a wonderful time to come take pictures for Easter too.
