Daffodil Disappointment

This year's Daffodil Drive, sponsored by the Long Tom Grange, isn't until this weekend.  Unfortunately, as in the past few years, there probably won't be a lot left for the drive.  Between spring arriving around Christmas and last weekend's strong, windy and rainy storms, they are just a big disappointment.
 
The good news is that what is left sure is traffic stopping
 
This year's crop

Thin and beat up by the storms

Some nice shots to be had, however

Tulipa bakerii 'Lilac Wonder', a species tulip that just doesn't look real

Rhododendron 'Mary Fleming' a micro rhodie.  The blooms are no bigger than a quarter but boy is it covered!
