Spring Daffodils in Twin Peaks
“The Twin Peaks Daffodil Story”
Springtime in the Lake Arrowhead communities means daffodil time in Twin Peaks! Thousands and thousands of the beautiful little yellow flowers dress the mountain. Where did they all come from, you ask? Well, it is a wonderful story of love and dedication. It all started in the fall of 1999 when Julie Greer planted a few bulbs. Daffodils were her favorite flower and she loved the sunshine that they brought. She was battling breast cancer. In 2000 she raised enough money to plant 1,000 more. Sadly she lost her battle to breast cancer in 2001, but her project lived on through her husband, Tom. He continued to plant bulbs around Twin Peaks (a whole lot of bulbs) in her memory. Our wonderful neighbor Tom, has since remarried but continues her legacy with his wife Tricia (which is no small chore). Together Tom and Tricia have planted over 80,000 daffodil bulbs. This year we expect to have an especially good bloom because of all the rain. We are looking at the last week of March to first week in April for the daffodils to bloom and they last about 3 to 4 weeks.
You will see small signs that say “In Memory of Julie Greer” and “Please Don’t Pick the Daffodils”
