Tag Archives: Daffodil Mile
It’s been a long, hard winter. Sometimes this feels not like April 21, but January 111th.
Don’t tell that to the daffodils. Willowbrook’s famed “Daffodil Mile” is now in full bloom.
That’s great news for the thousands of drivers who pass the Main Street cemetery every day — and the many more bikers, joggers and walkers who wait patiently for the display.
Over the past 10 years, families and friends of Willowbrook’s “residents” (aka dead people) have donated 35,000 bulbs. Each year the line of yellow flowers grows.
Next year, 10,000 more bulbs will be planted.
And in the coming months, cemetery trustees will release details on a new cherry blossom mall.
PS: The cool weather is good for one thing. This year, the daffodils will bloom longer than usual.
