Spirit-Lifting Sunday Drive Idea

This suggestion comes from garden club member Barbara Williams:

Daffodils abound at the Molly Stark House in Dunbarton

As many of you know, the town of Dunbarton has been planted with thousands of daffodils through the efforts of its Garden Club in honor of the Town’s 250th Anniversary some years back.

On a bright and sunny day, you might want to get onto Rte 13 north to Dunbarton to see the show! Rte 13 parallels a lovely and lively stream that makes the drive very scenic. You needn’t get out of the car to enjoy the daffodils against classic NE stone walls, houses and fields. The display usually occurs mid-April to mid-May. This year, peak is now, so you might want to go sooner rather than later. It is about a 40 minute drive each way from the Village and the “outing” can really lift your spirits!
