Hello my fellow Daffodil fanatics!

The Kentucky Daffodil and Bulb Society held it’s show in the George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester Kentucky on Saturday April 1st.

With all the weather being very warm, then in the low teens for days and repeated for the previous few weeks, I was afraid that the flowers would suffer greatly. For those flowers that came through the ups and downs of the temps, they were quite colorful. The colors this year have been deeper than I can ever remember, probably because of the very mild winter we’ve had here in the Midwest this season.

The Gold Ribbon was River Queen exhibited by Mike & Lisa Kuduk. There are 2 different photos of that winner below. I missed getting the white ribbon photo which was also 3 stems of River Queen, but Lisa submitted one too, so that photo is from her. Photos Below.

Hope everyone is having an enjoyable spring season!
