Beautiful enough to inspire poetry, the Daffodil has long been a symbol of prosperity and new beginnings, often signaling the “rebirth” that follows the end of winter. Well, here in the Bay Area, the bite of winter hasn’t quite hit yet, but we’ll be sending some golden warmth your way very soon. We’ve just completed the planting of 5000 Daffodil (Narcissus tazetta) bulbs of three different varieties right in the heart of the garden. The bulbs were graciously donated by Carla Preisler in memory of her husband. We expect the bulbs to bloom sometime during the month of January. So, stop by The Gardens in 2016 – it should be quite a show!
