Special Project for funds raised during the tour:                        DAFFODILS & DAYDREAMS

Rich in history, daffodils came to the colonies as “soft reminders of English springs.” The quintessential spring flower, the daffodil has transcended its humble status as a garden perennial to become nothing less than a cultural icon. Thriving even in places where they have obviously been accidentally dropped or discarded—they define the remnants of farm yards long gone and peek out brightly among crumbling brick ruins. Cultivars are astonishingly similar in shape and color, all twenty-seven thousand of them, and although it is a cultivated plant, it can survive just fine on its own. Above all else, the daffodil is a survivor.

 

Port Tobacco Village is a survivor too. Serving as an early county seat and an ocean-going seaport, the Village has endured and is one of the state’s oldest and smallest incorporated towns. Spanning history that includes Native Americans, revolutionary patriots, missionaries, assassins, spies, slaves, merchants, farmers, an arsonist, and everyone in between, there is almost as many stories as there are daffodil cultivars. The project incorporates the planting of 630 sq. ft. of bulb gardens in selected areas at the reconstructed Port Tobacco Courthouse in Port Tobacco, Maryland. A minimum of 5,000 daffodils along with some companion bulbs and selected perennials such as hellebores and heuchera will add a bright note to the village green. In addition, two colonial benches made by local Pioneer Woodcrafting, renowned for architecturally correct period pieces, will give visitors a spot for day dreaming and reflection.
