Hello Daylily Friends,
As you may all know, over the past week we have had nothing but snow and ice in North Georgia, and in particular, here in Cobb County, Georgia. Even though we had all of this snow and ice, I still went to work every day, and labored for my clients. On Friday evening, after most of the snow had melted, I nevertheless saw a "Snowman" in a yard that I passed on my way home. So, I stopped my truck and jumped out with my Canon camera, and took a picture. Just a wonderful Snowman that the sun had not yet affected. I thought you might like to see this snow giant.
On Saturday morning Diana and I got up early and went to David and Camilla's home for a meeting of our Officers who are working on their preparations for the Georgia Region 5 Summer Garden Tour. We were met by Camilla at her front door, and Camilla had a big, broad smile. I might add that Camilla is the newly elected "Regional Publicity Director" for Georgia's Region 5. Camilla gave myself and Diana a big hug, and then Diana and I both proceeded to Camilla's "Coffee Pot." There Diana found our friends, James and Terri Mullins. James and Terri have the responsibility for our "Judging Clinics" at the Hotel during the Garden Tour. Then, we saw Camilla's kitchen table where she had breakfast treats ready for everyone. I tried the muffins, and later went back to try the brownies. Oh so delicious! We had 17 members present for the meeting, and everyone was glad to get together. Seeing good friends who love daylilies, is a good way to begin to see the end of winter and better days ahead. I can't wait.
Speaking of better days ahead, I'm looking forward to seeing David lead our Cobb County Daylily Society into the new year. I know that David is a good leader because I see that he cares about the members of our Club, and puts their interests first, above his own. David also listens. Speaking of listening, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to our various Chairpersons speak about the preparations they are making for our Regional. I particularly liked listening to Doris Bishop talk about the "Mini Clinics" that she is preparing for Saturday afternoon. Doris is a Teacher and a wonderful leader in our Club.
Well I wanted to make this post yesterday, on Sunday, but I was working on updating my website to show our new introductions for 2011. As is obvious, I was unable to get this done. So, I was determined to do it this evening. My cat Sammy wanted his supper which I fixed for him, and then he wanted to go outside. So, I let him out. He was gone about 30 minutes, and he came to the back door. Diana said he looks like he has something in his mouth. Believe it or not, it was another large squirrel. Now Sammy is a hunter! This is the second squirrel that I have seen him subdue in the past two months. We love our little boy, Sammy.
Here is my question: Who will be person number 50 to become a "follower" of our blog. More news soon.
