The Daffodil Show

Hi Friends,

It is Spring Break so our weekly Mushrooms walk with toddlers is not scheduled tomorrow, but you may still find me out in the Pinetum Wednesday morning.  I’ll be out stalking the Daffodils we planted, and cheering on their blooms with my own family. Some of these photos were taken by my daughter today and she’ll be submitting one as part of the artistic youth category of the Connecticut Daffodil Show, sponsored by the Greenwich Daffodil Society.  See details below.  Do you plan to submit a photo or flower to the big show this month?  Will you attend the 57th Annual Connecticut Daffodil Show at Christ Church?

In any case, come out and enjoy the Daffodil Show in our green spaces.  The Pinetum is open to all. prediction for Cos Cob tomorrow, if you’re planning a walk about:  Sunny, with a high near 64. North wind 8 to 13 mph.

What to look for in the Pinetum:

Among our daffodils, by the entrance to the Montgomery Pinetum (brown sign), look for the special Barrett Browning Daffodils we planted with the Mushrooms in the fall.  These Historic Daffodils were donated by the Greenwich Daffodil Society as part of their community outreach.  According to GDS, “it is a classic daffodil from 1945, very bright and cheerful, and should multiply nicely over the years.”

We had a few teachers and parent volunteers who helped plant historic daffodils with students on their school grounds in the Fall and will be contributing photos as part of the Community Historic Daffodil Plantings Display. There are so many volunteers in our green spaces, working with children to brighten up the early Spring. I cannot imagine how many have been planted over the years with Greenwich Green & Clean.  We are happy to be a small part of that effort, thank you to everyone who is a part of this learning experience.
