A Special Memorial Garden Project in Memory of Michael Preisler – Coming Soon!
“I wandered lonely as a cloud / That floats on high o’er vales and hills / When all at once I saw a crowd / A host, of golden daffodils” — William Wordsworth
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. We’ve just completed the planting of 5000 Daffodil (Narcissus tazetta) bulbs of three different varieties right in the heart of the garden. Once bloomed, the entire hillside between the ash grove driveway and children’s garden area should be bursting with the colors of golden sunshine. The bulbs were graciously donated by Carla Preisler to celebrate the life of her husband, Michael. We expect the bulbs to bloom sometime during the month of January and provide a beautiful, seasonal boost to the garden’s mid-winter landscape.
