Hello Daylily Friends,
Several other daylily events that Diana and I have been privileged to participate in over the past ten days, include meeting with both the Albany Hemerocallis Society and the Henry County Master Gardeners. It was good to see Ron Bonner in Albany, and to also see Jim Parks at the Master Gardeners program.
On Thursday afternoon Diana and I are going to begin a journey to go and visit with the Richmond Area Daylily Society in Richmond, Virginia. The Club has been gracious to us, and has asked us to come and speak about our program. It should be a wonderful trip. The one problem that I have is that I wanted to visit several Civil War battlefields, but with the Government being shut down, this is not possible. One would think that with the weather so perfect this time of year that those in the House would put aside their differences and keep the government active. I really wanted to see the battlefield at Second Bull Run. Oh well. Still, we're happy to be going to Virginia.
I have to show two pictures of Little Lily Rae. In the first picture she has put my hat on her head, and I took her picture. As you can see from the picture her eyes are just beautiful, beautiful brown. I now sing to Lily Rae the song about "Beautiful, Beautiful Brown Eyes." She just loves the song. Then, this morning, Little Lily Rae was trying to wear Grandma's black shoes. Again I took a picture. Someday she may like seeing these pictures. She is just such a Brown Eyed Princess!
