Hello All
Our local SWODS show was held at the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati’s Eden Park. Eden Park is a great place for nature
walking, seeing all sorts of different trees in full bloom, The Art Museum and a local venue for live acting called Playhouse
in the Park. a large man made concrete pond where Cincinnati holds formal gatherings. There are a couple of overlooks where
the Ohio River is shown quite a distance down in the valley.
The Daffodil show was in a large tent outside the green house, where there is a butterfly show every summer. So, in order to
tie into that theme of the Butterfly, SWODS offered a “Best Butterfly Daffodil” ribbon this year. Mary Lou Gripshover has
named a beautiful hybrid of hers “Eden Park”, so it’s appropriate that this flower wins the Intermediate single stem and 3
stem Ribbons in a show that is held in Eden Park.
It was a lot of fun, probably the best fun of any of the 7 shows I will attend this spring season. Photos below with

The next show posting will be the Niles Michigan Show, then this coming weekend in Joe Hamms show. By then, I will probably
pass out for a week or so.
Happy Viewing!
