Sow the seeds of a bright spring during Daffodil Day

POULSBO — Volunteers will get a chance to make their colorful mark on the city of Poulsbo on Nov. 4.

The city of Poulsbo will be sowing the seeds of a bright spring during Daffodil Day. At 9 a.m. on Saturday, volunteers will meet in the garage at Poulsbo City Hall. Volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves and a small digging implement, like a trowel. No need to bring any daffodils yourself; the city will provide bags of bulbs and high-visibility vests — and coffee and donuts to get volunteers perked up and ready to plant.

It might be a good idea to bring something warm to wear as well, according to Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson; previous year’s plantings have been met with less-than-favorable weather.

“I’m hopeful that the weather will be good, but the last couple of years it’s been pretty bad,” Erickson said at the Nov. 1 City Council meeting.

Some 3,750 bulbs will be planted along rights-of-way throughout the city, Erickson said. The flowers, she explained, would serve as a welcome sight come springtime.

“When they all bloom, it is really a whole heck of a lot of fun,” Erickson said. “By March we really need to see those flowers, it’s a really good feeling.”
