Blooming good spring show.

A PLAN to brighten up Huddersfield is paying dividends.

Kirklees Council parks staff launched a massive bulb-planting project five years ago.

And this spring the scheme is really blossoming.

Many roads in and out of the town have been brightened by displays of spring flowers.

The thousands of spring bulbs planted as part of a council programme to brighten up the 'gateways' to our towns are coming into bloom and are providing an eye-catching sight for travellers.

Grass verges, central reservations, and major junctions are awash with blue and white crocuses - and daffodils are now starting to join them.

The planting programme started five years ago with new sites being added each year.

The bulb planting programme is funded through a number of sources including Kirklees in Bloom, area committees, towns and village centres improvement schemes, tenants and residents associations, neighbourhood management and parks and open spaces development.
