The second annual Bucks Beautiful Daffodil Photo Contest kicked off recently and runs through midnight April 30. Winners will be selected at random and contacted directly.

The Bulbs for Bucks Program was the inspiration of board member Chuck Gale, to beautify Bucks County at key locations with the first splendor of spring.

“I like the idea of planting daffodils because the bulbs multiply each year, and the project is long-lasting for future generations to enjoy,” Gale said. “To my knowledge, this is the largest bulb-planting project in the state of Pennsylvania.”

The program debuted in 2010, when 40,000 bulbs were planted along the Route 611 Bypass near Doylestown.

Additional plantings include those along the Delaware Canal State Park towpath, Washington Crossing Historic Park, Buckingham Green Shopping Center, the Michener Art Museum, Fonthill Castle, and several parks around Newtown, Sellersville and Perkasie, just to name a few.

To date over 1.6 million daffodil bulbs have been established throughout the county. With the support of the community, Bucks Beautiful hopes to continue to grow the program and surpass 2 million.
