Letters to the Editor

Take a break from politics for bulbs

This letter is not about politics. It is about the opportunity for citizens of Poulsbo to participate in an activity that will make everyone smile next spring. And we all can use more smiling.

The Poulsbo Garden Club is working with Mayor Erickson to bring Poulsbo residents together on Nov. 3 to plant 3,750 daffodil bulbs. Families, scouts, civic groups and individual volunteers are invited to come to the City Hall garage at 9 a.m. on Nov. 3 prepared to plant bulbs that will become spots of sunshine throughout the city in April.

At City Hall, there will be warm drinks, treats, bags containing 75 bulbs and directions for planting. more than 30 areas around the city have been identified. Groups will choose an area to plant and begin their digging. Wear appropriate clothes and garden gloves. Bring a planting tool, probably a trowel.

Now, wasn’t it refreshing to not read about politics?

Mary Carter
Co-president
Poulsbo Garden Club
