Lori Goings at Brent and Becky’s Bulbs helped Roney Leitner of Hallieford solve his mystery daffodil. He was overjoyed to find out it is an heirloom variety that dates before 1750. Leitner said he hopes to enter his flower in this weekend’s Gloucester Daffodil Show in memory of his beloved wife, Doris. This year’s show will be held from 2-5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday at Botetourt Elementary School. This weekend is also the 31st annual Gloucester Daffodil Festival.
