“Boston Strong” Marathon Daffodils not only line the 26.2 mile route, but potted daffodil plants are spread throughout Boston’s neighborhood parks this weekend, including Christopher Columbus Park on the North End waterfront.
The respectful gesture honors those who were lost five years ago on the April 15th bombings. Organizers including the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park ask that the potted plants be displayed through Monday at 4pm at which time the public is welcome to take home a pot and plant the bulbs in memoriam.
Last year, a professional documentary filmmaker followed the path of these flowers, telling the story of Marathon Daffodils and this remarkable effort of donors and volunteers.

The documentary is about one daffodils journey from The Netherlands to the Boston Marathon finish line. It will be completed this year.
I’ll keep you posted about the release. It will be wonderful!
Sorry .. last name is Piscitelli
Thank you for the lovely pictures of the daffodil pots in the Park, Matt.
There are many pots still out in the Park for the public to take as a memory of the 2018 Boston Marathon.
