Connecticut Daffodil Show

The Connecticut Daffodil Show at the Christ Church Greenwich, CT had it’s judging on April 26th, 2023.  It was a great show, and I thank Gaby Hall for our outstanding reception and the success of the show.  I took some pictures.

I’m going to start with the Best Intermediate Collection of 5 stems exhibited by Dianna Bowdich.  This collection not only won the 5 stems, but the best intermediate, the Gold Ribbon and the Purple Ribbon.

  1. Nice photos, Clay! Thanks for taking and posting them. It was a beautiful show and it was good to see you and Fran, Nancy Mott, and other new and old daffy friends. I took a few photos during staging and only got one snap of the show table at the front of the room before I had to catch the train back to NYC. I would liked to have had time to see the show and the designs!


  2. Nice of you to post pictures of the real show. That is, people staging for
    the show. I always miss that part because I’m one of those staging. I like
    those pictures.
