The tour did not disappoint. Members gathered, talking of last night's rain (mercy but that was a spectacular thunderstorm!), and how we were quite lucky that the hail didn't amount to much. Goodies were served and everyone was happy to socialize, ooing and aahing over the flowers.
|Yard no 1|
|Autumn Jewels daylily|
|Puffer Fish Daylily. Aren't the ruffles marvelous?|
|Yard no. 2|
|Butterfly Sneezes, hybridized by garden owner Karen Schock.|
People bring a sampling of blossoms from their garden and we vote on our favorite. The table was packed. I failed to take a photograph of the full table but you get a sense of this from the photo below. The Blossom Blast tour is a great way to discover new daylilies one might want to add to one's garden.
|My favorite was King George daylily. It is huge. I went home and ordered it! As my friend, Bob, says "It's addictive."|
