10,000 Daffodils

In what I consider to be an aesthetically controversially move, an art group decided a couple years back to plant 10,000 daffodils in a giant line criss-crossing through the Nichols Arboretum, one of Ann Arbor's finest parks.

The controversial part is that the line is sometimes unnaturally straight, and can be a bit jarring as you walk through an area otherwise full of natural curves. Nevertheless, watching all these yellow flowers every year is a great way to greet spring after a long Ann Arbor winter.

We made a point to take a walk through there yesterday. An older picture from past years can be seen at our snapshots on the sidebar.
