This November, more than 10,000 daffodil bulbs were planted at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum as part of more than 25,000 bulbs planted in the entire Town of St. Michaels, Md.

Through the work of volunteers, St. Michaels in Bloom works to create a welcoming and vibrant landscape for the Town through the planting of colorful flowers, plants, and trees throughout the local business and community district.
