Hello Daylily Friends,
I've just got to show two pictures of one of my newly selected seedlings. It is Seedling 3-379, and the parentage is as follows: ((11-201 x 1-414) x 1-414). To actually look at the parents you could go back, and review my blog entries made on March 10 and 24, 2012. I'm not sure about the color of 3-379. Sometimes it looks lavender, but then I know that this is probably not accurate, and Diana says that it is perhaps a blend of violet and blue. What are your thoughts about the color? I would be appreciative if you
Well, today is Saturday morning. I got up early this morning, and promptly went to clean the Greenhouse. Removed all of the old buds, looked for new blooms, and considered what had to be done to take advantage of the day. I had to hurry because we were to meet our friends, Don and Judy Bodner, and we worked together for our Club at the "Jonquil Festival" in Smyrna, Georgia. We worked from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m., and then we were relieved by other Club members. Our friend, Gene McCord, was in charge of our presence as well as our plant sale at the Jonquil Festival. After we all arrived we were soon very, very busy with lots of customers. People were just glad to see us there. I can say this with confidence: Those two young men who bombed the Boston Marathon wouldn't have done what they did if they had been members of a Daylily Club. Instead, they would have had friends, and plenty of activities to keep them busy. The whole horrible conduct in Boston was just bad.
working at the Festival Diana and I, and Judy and Don, all had lunch together at a "German Bakery." I had the special: two hot dogs and warm potato salad. I was told that the hot dogs were actually wienerschnitzel, which is said to be better than hot dogs. I must say the wienerschnitzel was mighty tasty. After lunch we all came here to our house, and looked over the crop of daylilies in the Greenhouse. My new Seedling 3-392, was the star of the afternoon. Again, it is a cross between the following parents: (Buzz Saw Boogie x Tet. Sunglasses Needed). 3-392 is the same cross as Seedling 3-374, which I just presented on my last post. Tomorrow a third sister daylily will bloom from this same cross.
my friend Kenny Shively came by to also look at the Greenhouse daylilies. Kenny came to visit a friend, and we were glad that he stopped by to say hello. Kenny is from Rineyville, Kentucky, and really enjoys daylilies. One of the daylilies that Kenny particularly liked was a cross that created an orange beauty. So, we had our picture taken just in front of this daylily. Then, I remembered my friend, John Wagner, who sent me an e-mail after I posted the 9" flower that is Seedling 3-374. John pointed out that I could just put a ruler in front of the flower, and show for certain whether it was 9". So, I put my ruler in front of 3-392, and Kenny took the picture to show for certain that 3-392 is also 9". Thanks Kenny for helping me with the ruler measurement.
That is all the news for today. Hoping for rain tomorrow.
