2017 Tower Hill Daffodil Field Trip

Breathe in the fresh spring air! The BVAA will be taking a field trip to the Tower Hill Botanical Garden sometime in April – whenever they announce their daffodil field is at full bloom. Usually it’s the last week in April, but it of course depends on the weather. As of 4/16 Tower Hill is reporting they’re on track for the last week of April. Let us know your availability in that time range.

We’ll be watching their website for updates on the field status.

More info on Tower Hill –

http://www.towerhillbg.org/

and info on the Field of Daffodils –

http://www.towerhillbg.org/the-field-of-daffodils/

Comment here or let us know at the main INFO @ BVAA.org email address if you’d like to join us. The plan will be to go in mid-afternoon when it’s both sunny and warm. Contact Lisa via text or cell or her gmail.com email address once you get there if you’d like to hook up. Or just meander over to the daffodils :).

Most libraries offer discount passes to get in.

In past years, Tower Hill has run an associated photography contest. The photo must have been taken between April 1 and April 30, 2016 at Tower Hill. We’ll let you know if we see any news of that happening again.
