Hello all my fellow Narcissophiles!
The Georgia Daffodil Society Held there show at the typical venue of the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell Georgia,
Just a bit north of Atlanta. 

The exciting thing for me was being surprised to see the exhibitor of the Gold ribbon winner, the John Lipscomb Estate!. What 
an awesome thing to see!. There were several top quality blooms exhibited by Johns Estate which are also shown in the photos

Also, an exciting experience was to see the Rose Ribbon winner which was a Katrina Rea Seedling exhibited by Greg Freeman. 
It was a wonderful start to the season for us eastern Midwest folks.
