On Saturday, February 21, 2015, members and friends of CMDS rode in a bus to David and Cindy Atkins’ Turkey Creek Road home near Natchez in Adams County, featuring a planting of over 750,000 bulbs of historic daffodil cultivars and species.  When we arrived we were met by David, Cindy, and a collection of friendly dogs of all sizes and colors.  Celia Jones and husband, Steve, and Annette Parker Kahn and husband, Russell, arrived by auto, having driven over from their homes in Louisiana.  The weather forecast was for rain; however, all we experienced were a few rain drops.  We were driven to various locations on David and Cindy’s property in four wheel drive, all terrain vehicles by Sage Atkins and a college friend.  After digging bulbs at the Atkins’ we visited several other places including the Forest Plantation where we saw Lint Lilies naturalized under some very large trees.
