Fellows Gardens’ daffodil show finally opens Friday

As springlike weather finally arrived this week, flowers were coaxed into bloom.

Across Fellows Riverside Gardens, gold- and lemon-hued daffodils, red tulips and deep-purple magnolias emerged and lifted their heads to the long-awaited sunlight.

The few days of nicer weather arrived just in time for Mill Creek MetroParks’ Daffodil Show. Originally scheduled for last weekend and delayed due to weather, the show now will go on.

The annual event at the gardens will take place today, Saturday and Sunday. Participants will show daffodils in all their various cultivars and hues, and the public is invited to come out and enjoy the colorful blooms.

“It’s very unique,” MetroParks Gardens Director Andrew Pratt said of the show. “It’s kind of like a best-of-show for daffodils, sort of like a rose show would be, but we do it with daffodils here at the Gardens.”

Participants will enter their flowers Friday and Saturday morning, then judging will take place on Saturday.
