Description

Dozens of people milled around aisles of tables with hundreds of daffodils during the first hour of the 51st Annual Arkansas State Daffodil Show on Saturday afternoon. The show is presented by the Arkansas Daffodil Society at the Faulkner County Library and displayed Southern regional daffodils.

 

People came from different states to look at the daffodils, said Gary Lee McClure of Pine Bluff. The McClures were helping run the event Saturday and answer questions.

 

Daffodil enthusiasts made notes on which varieties they liked and plans for their own gardens. Some daffodils were rare, including a green daffodil called Mesa Verde. 

 

The event continues 1-4 p.m. Sunday.
