DAFFODIL PLANTING - Remembrance of 9/11/01 by a Community in New York

There is no more fitting to place to honor and remember those that were lost than in a garden....

it reminds us that 
life goes on, in all Nature's wondrous 

I Heard an Angel

by William Blake

I heard an Angel singing

When the day was springing,

"Mercy, Pity, Peace

Is the world's release."
Eleven years ago I suggested to my village, Croton on Hudson, NY, that we plant daffodils to commemorate those who perished on September 11, 2001. 

And so every year the people of Croton of all ages come out and plant daffodils in public areas

The Croton Conservation Advisory Council invites you to join 
the 11thannual Daffodil planting 
on October 13, 2012 
at DUCK POND, Croton..
9am to 12 pm. Rain or shine


  1. What a wonderful tribute to the people lost on this day!

  2. I agree ! The Village of Croton on Hudson is a wonderful place to live and - since we are a 'commuter' town to NYC - we were very affected by the 9/11 tragedy.
