He hasn't updated his website yet, but says it will most likely be done in October with his 2014 intros. However, he has posted one of them on his blog (link below) called THE STING. He says he will be posting the others on there at some point. If you go to his blog check out seedling 2-471, it is stunning!!! I have reserved THE STING already so I would make sure I got one. Here is his photo of it

I saw that too, Michele, and I also loved his 3-348 (I think that's the number) toothy one that is just about the colors of KENNESAW MOUNTAIN HAYRIDE. Aren't they lovely? I'm so glad you've reserved THE STING to make sure you get one. And I think he's planning on introducing his HEAVENLY SUNRISE for 2014 too (back a few blogs) unless he changes his mind. I absolutely adore pure yellow daylilies, and this one's a beaut!

Oooh they are lovely! I really like IRISH CROWN and THE STING! I am on the list for FL BRIAR PATCH as well so I have to see if I can swing them. I wouldn't be able to take delivery until the spring anyway. Sad

Bill's wife Diana said this week that they were working on the 2014 introductions, so we might see something pretty soon. We think that the ones he's donating to the 2014 Region 5 Spring Meeting for a drawing will be from his 2014 intros. At least that is what Diana said. We are hoping that is the case. We are going to give the attendees all kinds of things. That Doris is a very giving person! You knew that already, though! We are trying to think up fun things for the Regional so they will remember it for a long time.
Lee Pickles is coming to our October 26 meeting to make a presentation. He'll be his usual fun self. We will have a little surprise for him!

We got an email from wife Diana today. Bill is donating The Sting along with four other intros to the Region 5 2014 Spring Meeting (June 13-14) which our Northwest GA. Daylily Society is hosting. The Sting will more than likely be in the auction on Friday evening. It will go for high dollar! By June The Sting will be sold out. It is very generous of Bill to include this highly sought after daylily as a donation. He could have sold it instead of donating it.

Bill is a good speaker. He is enthusiastic about daylilies and that is always a good quality in a speaker. Of course, having been a lawyer he is comfortable talking to groups.

Bill Waldrop was our guest speaker last night at our club meeting and he was great. His wife Diana couldn't come this time but she told us to take good care of him Smiling

He brought five of his new intros to auction off (several fans each) and a couple of his 2013s; he actually gave me a couple and Kim one for asking him to come speak. He also brought THE STING that I had purchased so I ended up with

Congratulations, Michele! What nice acquisitions! We will all be looking forward to seeing your pictures next year.

As we said in earlier posts that Bill and Diana are donating three 2014 Intros to our upcoming 2014 Region 5 Spring Meeting (June 13-14) to be here in Cartersville. We will auction THE STING, HEAVENLY SUNRISE, and MARLEE JANE. (Thanks for posting the pictures.) We will have drawings for his 2013 Intros BLAZING CANNONS and LITTLE JACKIE PAPER.

David and I came home last month from our Region 5 Fall Meeting with DIANA'S PEACHES AND CREAM. For some reason there was no picture of it when it was auctioned. I knew what it looked like and bid. No one else did so we got it for a REAL GOOD price!

HEAVENLY SUNRISE and MARLEE JANE are gorgeous plants. Bill seems to have a natural ability with color. I thought about ordering HEAVENLY SUNRISE before and clearly I need to think about it again!

I also saw this on Bill's blog. I think he hit the nail on the head:

"The President of the Club is Ms. Michelle Taylor, and she is a wonderful leader. It was obvious to me, while watching Michelle, that people like her, trust her, and enjoy doing things with her." Thumbs up

That is a HUGE compliment! Bill would not have said that if he did not mean it.

Have you all seen the orange toothy seedling he posted on his blog yesterday? It's out of DR. STUMP and THE STING! Drooling
