Good Morning Daylily Friends,
icken," and members brought many casseroles and desserts. Oh, there was so much to eat, and so many friends to talk to, I just didn't think that it could all happen so well on such a wonderful Marietta day. One of our members, David Bishop, was our Auctioneer at our plant sale, and our newly elected President, Mark Franklin, helped with the auction. The Auction went very well: we sold plants where members had earned points for working on Club projects during the year. Also, Mark and Patty Franklin brought many wonderful Iris plants from their garden, and let everyone have as many as they could carry. I also took a group picture of our Club just to record the afternoon and evening. Daylilies and Daylily Friends are exciting!
The last two days it has really rained, and this has been such a blessing for our gardens. The moisture has helped the seedlings get better established, and we've seen some nice fall blooms. This morning, at about 9:00 a.m., I went to the Greenhouse just to look around.

Now Lily Rae's ball is not like an ordinary ball. The only way that I can describe it is to show a picture. I also want to proudly announce that yesterday morning Little Lily Rae took her first steps. I saw Lily take three steps, and Diana saw her take two steps. So much progress. Although I didn't get a picture when Lily Rae took her steps, I did get a picture of her clapping while standing next to the table in the living room. She is becoming so nimble on her feet and toes. When we have Little Lily Rae, her Mother, Kelley Rae, always gives Lily Rae her evening bath. Kelley washes Lily's hair and her back and Lily splashes and just has the most fun. Kelley recently bought three "frogs" in different sizes, and Lily Rae loves to play with these. Splash, splash, frogs everywhere. Later, when Little Lily Rae grows tired, Kelley Rae gives her a bottle, and you can just see her melt into sleep. Last night Lily Rae slept from 7:00 p.m., until 6:45 a.m., this morning. When she woke up her grandmother, Diana Rae, gave her, her morning milk treat. Little Lily Rae is such a wonderful addition to our lives.
