I stopped in to the Garden Club of Virginia’s 80th annual Daffodil show Wednesday when I had time to kill between appointments.

It was a nice chance to appreciate the beauty of this pretty spring flower. I’ve always loved daffodils as one of the first bulbs of spring, but I’ve never spent too much putting together a wish list.

Well, I have a list now!

  • little miniatures with teeny tiny flowers, like “Little Gem”
  • big flowers with pink cups, like “Trumpeter Swan”
  • big white blooms with deep cups, like “Mount Hood.”

We need do divide our clumps of bulbs on the farm this fall, so it seems the perfect time to add a little more color.

I’ve added a few pictures. The lighting did something strange with my camera’s settings, so a lot of the pictures just didn’t turn out. The below are the best.
