Well, we have finally reached the end of my show photos for all the shows that I visited this year in the midwest of the country as well as convention in Sacramento California.

I made plans to take vacation days to visit a record 10 shows which involved the convention show as well as 9 others in the southern and midwest regions of the country.

Sadly, a few shows were cancelled and I had to miss 1 due to things beyond my control. So, in the end, I made it to 6 shows and was able to get photos of the winners and some not often shown flowers for all of you to see.

This brings us to the final show at Joe Hamms place in Washington PA. It was such a nice surprise to see Mitch & Kate Carney as well as the Ezell team! A great time for everyone. One of the highlights for me was a cultivar of “Enchanted Elf” which I’ve heard of but never known such a green eye in any specimen of ANY daffodil. It was a shocking beauty for sure!

Photos below.

it’s so sad to see the season come to a close. One of these years, I’ll make it to the Minnesota show!

God bless you all.

    Again, Thank you Tom for wonderful postings of daffodil shows. It lets us all feel as if we were “there” for each show! Beautiful blooms all.

  2. Margaret Macneale, Minnesota Margaret Macneale, Minnesota says:

    Tom – your photos are always so beautiful – thank you!  And any time you want to come up to our Minnesota show, we’ll be more than happy to have you!  We would even put you to work as a judge.  🙂

    We take photos, but just point-and-shoots…nothing like yours.

    Thanks again for using your precious vacation time this way!

    Margaret Macneale, President, Daffodil Society of Minnesota

    Tom, I personally cannot thank you enough for all of the photos from this show and the others.   We see blooms we would never see up close and personal.  You continue to serve ADS and all of us in a way we never expected but sincerely appreciate.  It appears to be a very special time for you to visit these shows and it is our blessing to have you so invested in these “vacation projects.”

    Here in Cincinnati, SWODS members recognized a long time ago how fortunate we were to have Tom as a member.

    In the last few years we’ve also realized how fortunate we are to have his partner Frank Vonder Meulen as a member. Frank attends most shows with Tom and willingly pitches it to help, acting as a clerk and looking for any odd job that needs doing.  After judging he acts as Tom’s flower exhibit ‘retriever and replacer’, a job that sometimes takes hours.   And he does it all so sweetly and pleasantly.

    A big  THANK YOU,  Frank.

    I too would like to thank Tom and Frank for sharing beautiful photos  with us all season long.  Their contribution does not stop with Daffnet, they also check to see if DaffSeek is in need of photos.  Tom then logs into his DaffSeek account and uploads his own photos. Photographers like Tom improve the quality of photos and reduce the time and effort required for administrators to maintain DaffSeek.
