"Trail of Flowers" volunteers in Massachusetts have committed to planting thousands of flowering bulbs, annuals and perennials along the Assabet River Rail Trail as part of a project to make the trail interesting.
May 4th was a flower-viewing trail walk from downtown Maynard to the historic Marble Farm site, where 1000+ daffodils were planted. The walk passed other planting sites. Fall 2019 will see planting of 3000+ bulbs in Maynard and Acton.
