Hello Daylily Friends,
e Pansing family to stay with us, but they were determined to drive, at night, to get to homestead at a time when they would avoid the holiday traffic. We even offered to have everyone stay in several empty bedrooms that we have, but to no avail. Jeff stopped because he wanted to add several of my 2012 introductions to his daylily garden. We talked for a while, and then we all went to the Greenhouse. When dayliliy gardeners get together in the morning, in the afternoon, or later in the evening, time is not an issue. We talked as much as we could until everyone knew that the Pansings had to get back in their vehicle, and proceed at an appropriate speed to Homestead, Florida. It is good, at Christmas, to see a family so committed to daylilies that they will stop to buy more daylilies, regardless of the time when the daylilies are purchased. Merry Christmas to the Pansings!
hat the "growing tip" properly emerged without any reason for rot. The second picture shows the first root from this conversion. When you see roots beginning to grow from your conversion work, you can be reasonably satisfied that you're on the way to having a true conversion. I think that Jeff was pleased to see SEBASTIAN THE CRAB being well on its way to becoming a useful tetraploid.
ghter, Lily Rae, all declined our Christmas Eve dinner invitation. This is the first time in 33 years when Kelley Rae has not been with us on Christmas Eve. So, Diana Rae fixed supper, just for the two of use. To my delight Diana Rae made her famous "Brunch Bread" that I like so much. Then, the two of us sat down for supper. However, Diana Rae declined to be in the picture because she said that she was not wearing her "make up."
Again I say, tune in tomorrow to see the Christmas bloom on Seedling 1-300!
