The Common daffodils are spreading

It seems as though Hatley resident Loni Campbell’s plan for creating a huge swath of yellow across The Common is working out well. In 2015, Campbell donated 1,000 daffodil bulbs to be planted on the Hatley Common. Her hope was that they would continue to spread each year and create a sea of yellow for residents and tourists travelling though town in the spring. On a chilly Saturday morning (Oct.3, 2015) around 30 volunteers got together with shovels, bone meal and potting soil and planted the bulbs across the length of the property bordering Main Street in town.
