2016 Julian Show

We just returned from the Julian, California show. It is not an accredited show and very few flowers are named. Nevertheless it is a FUN show. Somewhat fewer flowers than last year but still quite a number.

Here is a view of the show as one walks in…

The best collection of five different daffodils.

Does anyone have a name for this old white double. I was quite taken with it, but we are too warm to flower anything like this.
