Last weekend, fellow NGC flower show judges Connie Richards, Anita Brown and I attended Course I of the Amercan Daffodil Society's Daffodil Judge School. Exciting, too, was that the course was held at Brent and Becky's Bulb Farm in Gloucester, Virginia. I highly recommend you visit their farm if you are down that way. What a beautiful place! What a fascinating learning experience! For more information on Brent and Becky's, click here
Following the course, we attended Gloucester's Daffodil Festival. We're talking parades, history, daffodils, food, music and attending their splendid Daffodil Show.

Back here in the National Capital Area this past weekend, I competed in the Washington Daffodil Society and Mid-Atlantic Region Daffodil Show. Show leaders told me they had record attendance.My triandrus, 'Thalia' even won a blue!
One thing I've learned in the last month is how many people are fascinated by growing and showing
daffodils. And for some, it's not just competing. It's about spring and poetry.
