Daffodils begin to bloom on Daffodil Hill at Lake View Cemetery.

Daffodil Hill was established around 1941 by Dr William Weir, a hobby gardener who specialized in daffodils. He donated the original collection of 6,000 bulbs to Lake View Cemetery. Today, the exhibition has more than 150,000 bulbs, consisting mainly of Carlton and King Alfred varieties.

News 5 viewer Raechelle Sheppard drove by Daffodil Hill this week to see the condition of the daffodils.
