SOUTH FORSYTH -- The soft petals of flowering daffodils shone brightly in the warm November sun, the yellow six-pointed flower contrasted against the browning grass below in south Forsyth. Though only a handful of flowers were blooming, the dirt around the cluster had recently been dug into and watered — prime planting ground for hundreds more. Working in partnership with a nonprofit Holocaust education and awareness organization, middle schoolers at Pinecrest Academy recently planted more than 350 daffodil bulbs outside their school building in remembrance of Jewish children murdered during the Holocaust.
