Some will recall my plea for help on July 3 for ideas for a garden show that is coming up this weekend. Several of you responded with tips, several of which I am incorporating. Thanks.

Now I am asking for a photo of a young bloom from the back which shows the telltale green that would cause points to be lost at one of our shows. I want to give an example of “bad green” to go with all the good things I am saying in the display about green in daffodils – other than stems and leaves 8-).

I don’t know why you would have such a photo, but if you do consider forwarding it to me (digital to get here on time) and you will have been part of the solution to my earlier stated quundary.

I think I’ve used the “green theme” to give an overview of some aspects of daffodil gardening that will be new to most gardeners.

Thanks in advance.

    Would the pic at the URL below work?  It isn’t mine, but is one from a forum I frequent.  If it ‘fits the bill’ I could email the member, and I’m sure she would probably be pleased to share her picture.

    Sue…I wonder how the URL will show up.  Clickable?


  2. Sue:

    Many thanks. This is a “front view” of a “green when we don’t want it for the show” situation. I’ll use it if the owner OKs it.

    If I get another “back view” I’ll use both.

    I have emailed the pic owner and will let you know when I hear back from her.  btw, she said the daffodil is Ice King.

    I heard back from her and she was fine with the pic being used.  She asked that I let her know if you need high resolution.
