Hi to all Daffneters: 

 

Is that a real word!!!!  Haha

 

I have belonged to the Daffnet website for years and I have maybe posted twice.  It is like Bill Lee said in the message below, I have learned a lot from this website and I like to hear what all the “smart” daffodil people know and I can learn from them.  I love receiving all the beautiful pictures taken in the spring (all over the world) and are sent in to Daffnet for us to enjoy.  This has made me add 100s of daffodils to my collection in my yard.  It has made me be interested in the miniatures, the historic ones especially, and colors they come in; the list goes on.  I’ve learned new websites to find these daffodils so I can have them for myself to enjoy. 

 

I am so happy the Daffnet website accepts members, like me, who do not participate in the discussions.  Also, I am not that familiar with posting messages and I do hope this one comes through okay. 

 

Thank you Daffnet for letting us “non-posters” be a part of such a delightful website.
