The 2016 Livermore, California daffodil show was at Alden Lane Nursery March 5 and 6. We (the Northern California Daffodil Society) help draw people into the nursery, so the nursery does not charge us rent for the use of their building. Our season has been a bit earlier this year (or maybe the show was a little later) so we had a substantial display of flowers with 15 exhibitors entering 327 exhibits with 704 stems. Here are some of the American Daffodil Society award winners.

The award for the most blue ribbons is the Silver Ribbon won by Bob Spotts. He earned 45 blue ribbons.
