WAKE FOREST — It’s going to be a beautiful spring at Heritage, the master-planned golf community in Wake Forest. On Oct. 26-27, more than 100 families from the community joined together to plant 2,000 daffodil bulbs.
Families registered for bags of five bulbs, which they planted at pre-marked spots along the greenway and around Heritage pond. Wake Forest Mayor Vivian Jones grabbed a shovel and helped during the beautification project.
Those who participated were thanked with a Daffodil Days cooler and were eligible for prizes, which were given every half hour. The Wake Forest Veterans of Foreign Wars provided lunch.
“Life in Heritage is about more than just a quality home,” said Andy Ammons, Heritage developer. “Community events like Daffodil Days are part of life here and designed to bring neighbors together to make this a beautiful, friendly place to live.”
This was the third Daffodil Days event at Heritage, which included white flowers for the first time in anticipation of a beautiful yellow and white floral display next spring. Each family received a marker planting site and will receive notification upon first bloom.
