OK, people. ‘Fess up. I need to know how all the daffodils ended up in the median up and down Interstate 5. They’re too randomly spaced to be part of a beautification project. Or are they just a beautification project gone semi-horribly wrong?
If they were wildflowers (weeds) or other plants that grow from seeds, I would assume that people tossed seeds out into the median as they drove down the interstate. That’s a weird thing to do, but I suppose there’s nothing wrong with trying to pretty things up. And you’d think that it wouldn’t take much for those seeds to sprout and grow and spread. That’s what seeds typically do. But bulbs? When we plant bulbs in pots, it takes more than a little bit of digging and placement to get them just right. I would think that tossing bulbs out into a grassy median would not be the best way to get them sprouts-down and covered with 4-6” of dirt. (I follow directions, obvy.)
I Googled “daffodils on I-5” and got nothin’. I tried “daffodils median I-5.” I even tried “who the hell planted all the daffodil bulbs along I-5?” Still nothin’. I need an answer. I’ve been wondering this for a few years now, but driving the length of the state and back this week got me re-wondering. I think I might not sleep soundly until I know for sure.
Tell me you know. Tell me it.
