You might have a Daffodil addiction if.....
1...you have acquired 60 new (to you) cultivars spread out on the floor, waiting to be logged onto a spread sheet before properly storing until planting time.
2...you additionally have orders coming in later from 3 sources, but still want to look at and maybe order more.
3...you feel an urgency to start making up both above, and below ground markers for the new bulbs you already have plus those coming in later, to assure the name will stay with the bulbs.
4...you spend hours looking them up on Daffseek since you have never seen many of them before.
5...you are already anticipating 2 upcoming Daffodil Society meetings and what all they might yield.
6...you really start to be concerned already with where these are all going to be planted so they will thrive.
7...you wonder when your local daffodil friend/collector is going to give you the bulbs she has dug and put aside for you, but you 'hate' to ask. (They are likely still being cured properly)
8...you are already looking forward to the Spring Daffodil Shows (Competitions), and wonder how many you can attend and hopefully enter.
9...you love driving drive 2 hours (one way) to go to a Daff Society Bag and Tag Daffodil Party, helping to prepare daffs for upcoming Daffodil Society Sales, and hanging out for the day with other 'daffodil' people.
10...last, but not least, you enjoy looking at and touching the bulbs, and think of the beautiful blooms they will produce in years to come.
A daff friend mentioned a while back how he liked looking at the bulbs, and feeling them and I thought he was a bit strange. Now I am understanding the happy feelings he got from his daff bulbs.
Is anyone else showing signs of Daffodil Addiction?
What are 'your' signs?
