Hello my fellow Daffodil Enthusiasts
So,last weekend Joe Hamm held his show at his home in Washington PA. 

Joe dedicated this show to the memory of Helen Trueblood who passed from among us last year. 

I felt compelled to offer a trophy for a specific ADS winner at this show, so Joe also supported that extra effort and
Fredrica Lawlor created a special ribbon for the winner. We all had a discussion to decide which ADS winner to award this 
trophy to. It was decided that the trophy would be awarded to the ADS Single Stem Intermediate Ribbon Winner. 

This decision was made since Helen was the 1st ADS Chair of the Intermediates office and supported that effort very well
growing many of the newer cultivars so well, that she frequently won the ADS 5 stem intermediate ribbon many times during her
Chair of that office and even afterwards as well. 

The Trophy was purchased from one of the artisans of the Nashville Indiana area that is popular in the Midwest for vacations
and getaways. The trophy is a smaller iridescent swirled glass vase that seemed to be a perfect pick to me as it reflects 
what I think Helens personality is. Photos of the flower, the trophy, and the exhibitor who won the trophy are included in
the below collection of photos from this show. 

Sadly, this is my last show and report for the 2018 season. But, I am slowly eased into the summer by other plants that 
start to come into season now. 

I hope everyone has a great year ahead.
