With a sunny weekend expected in the Willamette Valley, there'll be a bouquet of activity happening north of Eugene.
Many people will be heading to Junction City for the 42nd annual Daffodil Drive.
Little yellow beacons are blooming along Ferguson Road west of Junction City, just in time for organizers to open up Long Tom Grange for this weekend's Daffodil Drive.
“All of the flowers coming up, the daffodils in bloom, it's a great time to remember it's a chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors,” Jolene Thomson said. Thomson works for Guaranty RV in Junction City.
“Probably the best daffodil festival - as far as weather goes - we've had in the last ten years,” Danuta Pfeiffer said. Pfeiffer is organizing this year’s drive.

There's a growing crackdown on Google Glass, those high-tech computers mounted in eye-glass frames. Now some in San Francisco are mounting a campaign against them, and just wearing the glasses could be asking for trouble. Dan Simon found that out firsthand.
A man is in custody after he refused to come out and meet with police Monday.
In an attempt to escape, the suspect threatened to throw feces at police, according to officers at the scene.
The incident on Candlelight Drive in West Eugene started around noon when Kenneth William Hinton refused to come out of a home and meet with officers who were attempting to serve a warrant, according to a police spokesperson.
Police used a loudspeaker to ask him to come out.
Then they sent in a dog.
Hinton was taken into custody around 2:40 p.m. after he jumped out a window and made a run for it.
Before being captured, police said Hinton threated to throw his own feces at them.
