Despite the terrible heatwave for the last 2 weeks, we are all pleasantly surprised at the good quality and number of entries this year. Someone even grew Kyushi Maya in a pot and brought it. I was particularly happy with the number of Lilium leichtlinii stems entered for exhibition: all six were well grown. A few other species were there too, but were not so happy looking. Blinking Two of the members commented to me how wonderful the L. leictlinii were, and that they were so large for a species. Confused Well I guess some education is needed here, 'cause while most are not giant sized, they shouldn't be dinky either. Still, their efforts are to be applauded, and shame on me for not bringing any...

We have a separate table for Minnesota hybrids.Thumb of 2012-07-07/Leftwood/95417c

Love it that the NALS show will be closer geographically me the next couple of years. Hurray! I look forward to hopefully attending one or both of the next couple years. Thanks for the photos Lefty.

Great photos, Rick! The Wisconsin-Illinois Lily Society has their show at the Chicago Botanic Garden today and tomorrow. If I can find some spare time, I would like to take a drive up there to check things out.

Cool, I'll get to make NALS 2 years in a row. Next year we'll be hosting in Iowa and then in Mpls ~ my old stomping grounds. What a great excuse to get back to theTwin Cities (and eat my way through them.) Hurray!
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?
