Hello Daylily Friends,
lf. She splashed the water. She played with several toys. She laughed. It was all so much fun. After a while she got a little tired of the water so Diana bathed her dry with a soft towel. Then, Lily Rae put on one of her new dresses. She is such a Princess. Seeing Little Lily Rae makes any day a happy day.
s, we worked for weeks, and finally moved practically everything outside. I had to go through the seeds and decide what we would plant. Then I had to make the soil, make the tags for the seed trays, and get the seeds into the soil. I finished yesterday afternoon. So, on Thursday, July 26, our last seeds were planted. This morning David and Diana went with me to the Greenhouse to see what had been accomplished. I'm just glad that this part of the task is finished.
w Mountain Daylily Gardens" listed on the Totem Pole. I thought that we should have our picture taken in front of this structure, so we did. One thing that I liked about the refreshments at the garden was that they served a hot "Quiche" to anyone who asked for the treat. They were delicious! Our Region 5 Director, Ms. Barbara Kirby, also decided to try the wonderful Quiche dish. How could anyone say anything but "yes" to such a deliciously appearing delicacy.
daylilies were wonderful to see. However, it started to rain so we went inside the Conservatory. I'm glad we did. One place where we eventually visited was a large area filled with plants and butterflies. I took a picture of of a butterfly that appeared to be tasting a treat in a red dish, and then suddenly, it flew up and landed on the right side of my face. My dear wife Diana was handy with the camera, and got the picture. The outside of the wings of the butterfly were "blue and black." Quite a sight to see!
Diana and I want to thank the Metropolitan Columbus Daylily Society, and Cynthia and Charles Lucius, for making this National Convention a time we will always remember. The organization was A+++. The gardens were wonderful. Every member of the host club always wore the same shirts so they were easy to recognize. The food was great; the hotel was great. A wonderful way to spend three days during the middle of July in America.
