Hello Daylily Friends,
This past Sunday evening it was obvious that TET. SUNGLASSES NEEDED was going to bloom on Monday morning. The last time that I looked at the bud on Sunday evening, it was just massive in size. I'm sure that there have been larger buds in terms of length of the bud, but this particular bud measured seven inches around the middle of the bud. Yes, I did say "seven inches." I took a picture of the bud so that everyone could see its massive size. Then on Monday morning I went with Lily Rae to the Greenhouse to see the bloom. Oh, it was such a large bloom. In fact I think I can easily say that the bloom is as big as my head. Indeed, seeing this bloom makes it easier to understand how Seedlings 3-392 (See Post on 4-27-13), 3-394 and 3-397 (See Post on 5-2-13), were all nine inches in diameter.
Well Lily Rae has new Sandals. Her Dad bought her a new dress and new Sandals, and Lily Rae was so pleased with her appearance. She likes to walk on the grass in the Sandals, and she is such a lady in her beautiful dress. Her Dad is a good shopper, especially for shoes. Later in the morning Grandmother Diana Rae was showing Lily Rae the fish in our pond. Lily Rae adores the fish. She likes their colors and she likes to see them move. Lily Rae is the best!
The outside garden is really growing well. Many plants, however, are shorter than they would be because of the late cold snaps we had with the weather. I've got to quit making seeds in the Greenhouse, and now focus on the possibilities in the outside garden.
