floriade daffs

One of the marquees at Floriade had a table full of crazy daffodils.  I'll admit I didn't bother taking snaps of the classic yellow types, just of some of the crazier ones that caught my eye.  My favourites were these first few, with super-small coloured coronas (middle bit) and crisp white perianths (the outer petals).  That last one has almost no corona at all!
Some of them had a pinkish corona, like these.
And then there were a few wild-looking types.
This isn't a tulip at all, I wrote down the name: "Fritillaria meleagris".  I just thought it looked interesting, never seen anything like it before.
Next up: bonsai!
