The WDS show was held yesterday  14 April in Alexandria, VA at the Alexandria Valley Scottish Rite Temple.  We had a good turn out on a sunny day, however the wind was blowing fairly hard but if was a relief from the winter weather that we have had for the last month.  It was like old home week as I started my daffodil career at WDS.  Along with Karen Cougar, there was Kathy Welsh, Richard Ezell, Janet Hickman, Glenna Graves, Scott Bally, Bob and Lina Huesman, Robert and Mary Darling, Mary Anne Barton, Paul Botting and of course myself.
