Four of the five daffodil shows that I intended to Judge this year have cancelled their shows.  Not sure about Chambersburg, PA yet.

I will be taking pictures of my daffodils this year and if I have anything worth showing, I’ll put them on daffnet.

 

I would like to encourage all others to do the same thing, if your show as cancelled.

    Speaking of Photos,

    I have a question–does anyone have a compilation of pictures of historic daffodils that can be shared?  It would help me to possibly identify one that I have growing in my garden from my family home which was in central southern Virginia.  I have one in bud, but it may be two to three weeks before it opens, and I will photograph it when it blooms.

    Hi Lewis,

    There is a Historics email listserve group for folks interested in historic daffodils; many of the folks knowledgeable on historics in the US and abroad are members (and some of those who are not on rare occasion are emailed privately). We love photos and garden/family histories. There are also a number of identification resources for historics in DaffLibrary.org.

    Clay, please do. We have had no report, or photos, of the National Convention. I look forward to the photos and reports every year.

    In answer to Lewis Turner, DaffTube has PDF files of photos that Joe Ham took of historic daffodils. See

    Sarah, thank you–I will need to know how to get in touch when the daffodil comes into bloom.  I have this one that I need to identify, and I have one other-Narcissus Biflorus, both from the same homestead.  Again, I will take a picture when it is in bloom.

    Kirby, thanks–I will take some time and look up those pictures.

    I do have some pictures of some daffodils from a nearby location –about 3 miles from my family homestead, that I will use and try to identify.  These were probably planted in the period of 1900 +/-.
