Spring Blooms on Old Town Road

Daffodil bulbs planted in the winter through volunteer project have blossomed.

Hundreds of daffodils are blooming along Old Town Road south of Route 347 in Terryville in a project begun by a local resident to beautify the neighborhood, The Port Times Record reported Thursday.

About 4,000 were planted this past winter as volunteers collectively chipped in 50 hours of work.

The idea for the project belongs to Craig den Hartog, a Terryville resident who owns Holtsville-based Emerald Magic Lawn Care. In an email to Patch, den Hartog said he and a team of volunteers have also planted bulbs in East Setauket north of Route 347 on Old Town Road.

Joan Nickeson, the head of beautification for the Port Jefferson Station-Terryville Civic Association, praised den Hartog as "a terrific example of community members taking an interest in beautifying our hamlet," according to The Port Times Record.
