Since the Westcott Neighborhood Bulb Project started in 2003, the program has planted 72,000 bulbs.
Until last year the focus was the East Side neighborhood around the Wescott Community Center, which sponsored of the project. But in 2010 the project expanded to the North, South and West sides of Syracuse.
As the weather warms, the bulbs will bloom and bring some color to those lawn spaces throughout the city. Why not get out there and check them out?
