Tom Hendren and his wife Linda entered two daffodils for the Roger’s Gardens daffodil show and both blooms won a ribbon. Tom was looking at the winning daffodil table and I asked if I could photograph him and post his photo on Daffnet. He graciously gave permission. I thought he was such an interesting and happy looking person and here he is will his daffodil and ribbon.
I observed that Roger’s Garddens manager Ron Vanderhoff and Horticulturist Rex Yarwood took their time judging and very seriously considered all entries.
I believe they had something like 200 blooms exhibited this year with several hundred people viewing the daffodils. It was warm in the 70’s F and we wondered how the daffodils would hold up but they seemed to do well. Roger’s Gardens is 2.2 miles or 3.5 Km from the Pacific ocean.
