I went to a daffodil festival today. Sixty acres of daffodils of all kinds. I usually buy bulbs at this event but they did not dig this year. The plants have taken a beating and need a year or two to make a comeback. Even tough old daffodils had a hard winter.

Speaking of tough, I think that is why I have NOIDS....they never die. My very lovely and pricy plants languish while the NOIDS take over. This is a picture of a rhizome that fell out of a sack, bag, apron, whatever..... when I had loaded some NOIDS on unsuspecting novices. This iris is growing in several layers of rocks on the edge of the driveway.

That is a quarter I placed beside the plant for size comparison. We don't usually have those big rhizomes in this area.
