Boston Marathon and the Significance of Daffodils

Sean MurphyComment

Yesterday marked 3 years since two bombs detonated around the finish line at the Boston Marathon. 

Since the bombing many homages have been established, all with deep meaning, and pride for Boston but none is lively and vibrant than the daffodils to the city and suburbs that are the route of the race.

These daffodils in bloom throughout the greater Boston area mark more than the change of seasons, 

These daffodils symbolize a sense of hope and rebirth after the tragedy that transpired 3 years ago. 

Estimated more than 100 volunteers from the eight towns along the marathon route pitched in to plant as many of the daffodils a hardy perennial as they could before the race.
