Our property has a long stretch of road frontage, with a strip of grass that we constantly have to maintain to keep from getting out of control. When we first moved in, we envisioned planting something along it, but the percentage of gravel to dirt is pretty high (as are the chances that the county road department will come through and cover anything we plant with more gravel), which limited our options.
After Megan’s stepmother Cassy died a few years ago, we started planting daffodils, her favorite flower — first just for ourselves, then as part of a fundraiser we did to contribute to a memorial scholarship in her honor at the local community college. We’ve raised enough to give 3 students a $2000 scholarship, which is pretty amazing! This year the bulbs really hit their stride, and we love how they look!
