Travel Texas :: Mrs. Lee's Garden

"The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the bird for mirth,
You're nearer God's heart in a garden,
Than anywhere else on Earth."

Breathtaking and inspiring, Mrs. Lee's Garden showcases the beauty of Spring daffodils while delighting the senses of visitors. Open for just a brief moment (mid-February until the last blooms in March), Mrs. Lee's is a treat for the young and old.


Helen Lee's vision of golden hills stretches out approximately 28 acres and includes a 4 mile winding roadway, two lovely lakes, and a rustic cottage reminiscent of pioneer days.

The garden is open every day of the week during blooming season from 10am until 4pm. It is always a good idea to call ahead to ensure optimal road conditions, as it can be a little muddy at times.

While there is no cost to visit and enjoy the grounds, donations are always welcome to preserve and maintain Mrs. Lee's inspirational gift.

Nestled south of the little town of Gladewater, Mrs. Lee's Garden is located off of County Road 3103 and more information about the garden can be found here.


On our recent visit, the boys, Jake, and I enjoyed a lovely ramble through the countryside and were awestruck by the simple beauty of gold upon green. If you have not ventured to the garden, you don't want to miss out on Spring's bounty. This year is quite spectacular due to the rainfall East Texas has received.
