Hello Daylily Friends,
Today is a wonderful day. Thanks to the tireless efforts of my beautiful wife, Diana Rae, we now own the domain name, "Kennesaw Mountain Daylily Gardens." Bobby Baxter does not own the name because my wife proved to GoDaddy.com, by indisputable evidence, that we alone have always owned the name. Indeed, I created the name back when we first purchased Colchicine from Sigma-Aldrich in St. Louis, Missouri. This was long before we had a website. Also, I had the name posted with the Georgia Secretary of Agriculture before we had a website. We even paid a license fee, using the name of our garden, to the Secretary of Agriculture. We're just glad that this is all over, that we again have our website, and that our friends can again see our daylilies.
On to a more interesting topic. Last spring I made a number of crosses between RED SAPPHIRE and RED TOP MOUNTAIN. So far I have seen at least a dozen new blooms, but I haven't yet achieved what I think that I wanted to accomplish. However, with daylilies there are always surprises. There were two surprises this morning. Seedling 3-310 had a green throat, with an impressive pink eye, surrounded by a light pink self. Seedling 3-311 had a green throat, a light pink eye, and a yellow self. Both daylilies promise to be helpful in my hybridizing, so they both received numbers.
It is so exciting to be selecting seedlings and hybridizing again.
