Sandspit leads daffodil contest

  • Apr. 11, 2007 4:00 p.m.

Linda Clark is the leader in the Observer’s annual daffodil contest, after the end of week one. Ms Clark has 62 daffs on her Sandspit property.
Hot on her heels, from the other end of the islands, is previous title holder Lynn Humphries of Masset, with 29 in bloom. Those are the only two entries in our daffodil contest so far.
The rules are simple: count the daffodils on your residential property and call our hotline at 559-4680, fax to 559-8433 or email observer@qcislands.net
The contest closes at noon on Monday, April 16, and we’ll be announcing the winners in the April 19 issue.
The person with the most daffs in bloom wins a two-year subscription to the Observer. We’ll draw a second winner from the names of all who enter.
