The daffodil bulbs are just emerging in my backyard, but a story that I wrote about this lovely Dayton daffodil display and garden party for Midwest Living is now on the newsstands. Here, a 1-1/2 acre hillside is planted with some 140,000 daffodil bulbs, primarily the classic trumpet varieties like Carlton, Fortissimo, Fortune, Unsurpassable and Dutch Master. The gracious couple invites guests to an afternoon party to celebrate spring and enjoy (and pick) the daffodils. Check out the online version of the story for party ideas, including daffodil cookies, bouquets and menu.
