Bulb Show at Smith College

Friday I visited the annual bulb show at Smith's Lyman Conservatory in Northampton ,Mass.  As I've noticed before over the years, plants forced in greenhouses tend to have brighter colors.  Also, they different Narcissus were way taller than when grown outside--they all had to be staked and pressed closely enough together to hold each other up.  Two varieties which I don't have and liked at the show were Avalon and Tropical Sunset--I am hoping to getmore this year.
   Our Daffodil walk is planned for April 29th, a week earlier than normal.
