St Martins Residents Association last week celebrated the ancient feast of Halloween by planting 1000 daffodil bulbs at two “bulb bombs.”
The Residents Association held the first planting with pupils of all ages in St Martin de Porres National School before they broke up for their mid term break on Friday.
They planted hundreds of daffodil bulbs donated by the Residents Association in Sean Walsh Park on the Dublin Mountain Way trail in Heatherview, which is right beside their school.
The kids worked very hard with their teachers and the Residents Association coordinator, who are all now really looking forward to seeing them sprout up in the park next Spring and adding lots of colour around their school.
Following that and to kick off the Bank Holiday weekend, the Residents Association had a family bulb bomb beside the play area and park on Firhouse Road West on Saturday.
A group of over 40 grandparents, parents and children had great fun making friends and planting their bulbs, with lots of love – bulbs were named, signed and even hugged before being planted !
The Starlight crèche will be adding to the bulbs at the play area after the mid term, courtesy of the Association’s bulb bomb.
During the family planting, a friendly Halloween witch dropped by with goodies for all the budding gardeners as a reward for their hard work and community spirit all morning.
This recharged Residents Association is open to residents of the Aylesbury and Old Bawn.
