Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

On Saturday morning, I (and my children) got to go to a wonderful exhibit of the American Daffodil Society. People from all over the country displayed their finest Daffodil Specimens. Of the many things I did not know about daffodil’s are that there are over 17,000 varieties! I suppose like any subject, once you delve into it, you learn things are not as simple as they might seem. I have noticed different colors of daffodils around in the springtime, but I really assumed that they were “new” types, hybrids cultivated from the old yellow kind. I still have some beautiful daffodils my mother planted over 25 years ago, and I guess I always figured that was the standard. I cannot give you the history of the daffodil (you can google that) but I can share a few of my photos. I got to enjoy varieties that have been around since the turn of the century (the former century) and there was even a flower that has been around since before 1777. Most of the “Historic” Daffodils were not plain yellow. Hmm, not hard to learn something new everyday! So, how does this relate to Change? Change of how one thinks about things. Change of varieties, hybridizing, growth. Change of the seasons. Daffodils representing the emergence of Spring!
