Most Daffodil exhibitors will be familiar with Daffseek the American Daffodil Society facility which provides on-line photographs and details of daffodils, both hybrids and species. Nancy Tackett and Ben Blake have themselves awarded Daffseek Photographer pins to people who have contributed many photographs for use on the site.
At the RHS Late Daffodil Competition, Nancy presented pins to two ‘northerners’, Reg Nicholl (pictured below), who has been doing missionary service in the South for many years, and James Akers. Tony James had already received his pin (presented by Jackie Petherbridge) at The Daffodil Society Dinner at the Annual show, a photograph of which appears on the Daffodil Society website.
Also receiving pins at Wisley were Michael Baxter, who I am told is also a missionary from the North, and Roger Braithwaite.
