PORT ANGELES — Forty-five thousand blooming flower bulbs weren’t enough last spring, so 10,000 more will be planted by a Rotary club this weekend along U.S. Highway 101 east of town.
Port Angeles Rotary Club’s project to beautify areas of U.S. 101, in which curbs, gutters, sidewalks and retaining walls were completed in mid-2000, continues with more flower species, said Andrew May, a Port Angeles horticulturist, Rotarian and chairman of the project.
The stretch between DelGuzzi Drive and Brooke Avenue broke out in a rainbow of tulips, daffodils and iris between April and June.
The addition of more iris, crocus, hyacinths and tulips, which are being planted this weekend, will extend the blooming time, May said.This full report appears in the Friday/Saturday editions of the Peninsula Daily News.
