Photos of My Daylilies
Here are pictures of most of the daylilies I grow. Some of them have not bloomed for me yet! I will try to keep adding my new daylilies as I get their pretty faces on film. I hope these beauties can serve as an inspiration for all those daylily collectors out there!

Region 6 Garden Tours - DAY 1

Best Blogger Tips
On May 29th and 30th, the Region 6 Meeting attendees went on their garden tours, and that included me!! I was so excited about this part of the Regional, I could hardly contain myself. We were really in for a treat. I just loved seeing how daylilies were growing for other people in my same climate. On the first day, we all piled in to a great big bus and drove to four gardens.

The first garden we saw belonged to Ms. Gwen Pennington. She has a beautiful garden, and she and her daughter had layed out quite the breakfast spread for everyone. YUM!! Tamales, bundt cake, coffee, juice and zucchini bread (sorry Gwen, I ate about 4 pieces)!!! She has quite a few beds in front of the house.

The second garden we saw belonged to Gene and Shirlene Holt. They had lots and lots of formal beds in their very extensive back yard that were built just for daylilies. But by the house closer in, they had daylilies intermixed with lots of other perenials. There garden was unique because they had created lots of "pocket" gardens. You just kept finding more and more stuff to look at! Photobucket We were greeted by a GIANT staghorn fern - what a beauty!! Photobucket The Holts had set up a lovly respite in the shade for everyone to enjoy some more lovely treats.

Last, but certianly not least, we got to visit Eddie and Nickie Knight's garden. Their garden was unique because the daylilys were all interspersed within the garden setting - mixed with annual and perenials. There were lovely walking paths that would take you to unexpected places and you'd find another small garden area.
