Mr. P.G. set to bloom
Mr. P.G. will be first to see yellow daffodils coming up next spring.
On Monday, representatives from the Canadian Cancer Society and City of Prince George braved strong winds to plant daffodil bulbs at the MR. P.G. site on Hwy. 16. The new garden bed will add colour to the cause – the Daffodil Campaign.
“We are planting the bulbs now so that in the spring they will come up in time for the launch of our annual Daffodil Campaign,” said program coordinator Marjo van Helvoirt Koop. “The daffodil is a symbol of hope for families going through cancer, so we’re calling it Garden of Hope. We also wanted to celebrate the Canadian Cancer Society’s 75th anniversary.”
City representative Sean LeBrun said Monday he hopes the group can come up with ideas for other flowers, annuals or perennials, that can be planted to provide a continuous colourful display after the daffodils have faded.
There are also plans to improve the green space in the surrounding area as well, he said.
