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.
