There’s something about daffodils in Spring that catches your attention. They are such a bright splash of yellow appearing after a fairly monochrome winter. Likewise, the Golden Roads project has caught some media attention over the years. That’s helped us inspire similar projects elsewhere, brightening up roadsides and other public places.
Our Golden Roads Daffodils initiative and small-town community has been discovered, with recent feature articles in three national gardening magazines and an Associated Press article published in newspapers coast to coast.
The Daffodil Journal, December 2020, a publication of the American Daffodil Society. The article written by the Lewisboro Garden Club’s own Maureen Koehl titled “Lewisboro’s Golden Roads.”
Country Gardens Magazine, 2020 early spring edition titled “Destination Color – A New York Community Plants Bulbs Along Roadsides to Create an Avenue for Passersby to Enjoy Eye-Popping Spring Blooms.”
