2024 Georgia Daffodil Society (GDS) show Wins

Hello Friends!

The GDS held their show on March 8 and 9, 2024 at Johns Creek Baptist Church, Family Life Center, 6910 McGinnis Ferry Road, Alpharetta, Georgia. 

It was the southeast regional show so all the special regional awards were offered. The quality was very good with color and substance that we wouldn’t expect for the heat of the south.

The Gold Ribbon winner was an outstanding specimen and also the Rose Ribbon to boot! Becky Fox Matthews should be very proud. That flower had substance that was surprising.

Special apologies to Jaydee Ager who was the winner of the Bankhead award that I failed to photograph. She also was the winner of the mini bronze ribbon that was very nice.

Enjoy the photos!
