Few flowers trumpet the arrival of spring like a daffodil.
Few flowers trumpet the arrival of spring like a daffodil. Their green shoots pushing up through the newly thawed earth, their buds swelling in anticipation, and finally, their bright yellow petals unfurling and announcing “Spring has sprung!”
And few events announce the arrival of spring like the Little Garden Club of Rye’s annual Daffodil Show. Taking place in the bright yellow building of the Jay Heritage Center Carriage House, the show will be an immersion course in spring. Hundreds of daffodils will be showcased, each a specimen in one of the 13 daffodil divisions recognized by the Royal Horticulture Society. The flowers will be judged by American Daffodil Society judges, and ribbons awarded to the best blooms. The show is officially sanctioned by the American Daffodil Society.
Everyone, including children, is encouraged to enter cut daffodils grown in their gardens. Entries will be accepted on Wednesday, April 15 from 3-5 and on April 16 from 8-10:15. Entrants will need to be able to identify the cultivar of their flower, but there will be materials and experts on hand to help.
Even those who do not enter can come by and experience first-hand the wonderful variety of this spring flower. The show is open for viewing from 2-4 on April 16.
