Hello My fellow Daffodil enthusiasts!

The ADS Fall Forum (formerly known as the ADS Fall Board Meeting) was held in Indianapolis Indiana with the 1st ever fall blooming daffodil show!

Unfortunately for me, I couldn’t leave my day job early as I had previously planned to, so I missed the 1st day that also included the (always a blast for me!) bulb auction. I arrived at about 9:15 in the evening just as the bulb auction was finishing up. I started setting up for photos right away.

If any of you follow me on Facebook, these photos are also posted there.

A GREAT BIG thanks to Suzy Wert, Mary Milberger, Janet Wilson and all those who put a helping hand into organizing this event as it was such a wonderful time. It’s sort of like a little bit of relief from the Daffodil Withdrawals at the end of the springtime.

It was a great time!
