I just noticed that I forgot to photograph the Miniature Red-White-Blue Ribbon winner, so I apologize to Jon Kawaguchi whose exhibit won that ribbon. The class is for five miniature American-bred daffodils. The flowers in Jon’s winning exhibit were ‘Suzy Q’ 10Y-Y (Higgins), ‘China Gold’ 10Y-Y (Blom), ‘Apollo Gold’ 10Y-Y (Blom), ‘Oxford Gold’ 10Y-Y (Blom), and ‘Oregon Petticoat Group’ 10Y-Y (Blom).
