We had so much fun last year when we had Daylilies Week, that Dave and Trish decided to keep the "weeks" idea and expand it to all kinds of plants! Every month has had a different plant. Well, Daylilies are so popular, Dave and Trish decided they should have another week!

The Daylily Stories Contest that Sharon, Char and I held a week or so back was just our own little warm-up for the upcoming events! We wanted to be able to pass around some

Acorn Acorn Acorn Acorn Acorn

because we knew that there would be some nice Not-A-Raffle-Raffle PRIZES to spend all your

Acorn Acorn Acorn Acorn Acorn

on! and there are!

Hurray!

Our own forum member Sunday (Sunny) has offered up a triple fan of two lovely daylilies, Char is donating a membership to AHS, Tink3472 (Michele) is donating a lovely embroidered apron and one of James Halls introductions... Melanie Mason is boxing up a special box of goodness from Longlesson Farm, there are prizes from Oakes, from Shaw's Sunshine Garden... so get those tickets bought for a chance at some great prizes!

Stay tuned for the Podcast - which will feature Melanie Mason of Longlesson Farm!

Also - Spunky1, our own Fred Manning is running his annual NAME THE DAYLILY CONTEST this week - yep that's right.... come up with a winning name, and he will send you some of the brand new introduction that you are naming! This contest is always so much fun!
Here is a link to the details and how you can add your names for a chance to win...
http://garden.org/ideas/view/spunky1/1543/Spunky1s-Annual-Da...

All week long, there will be informative articles and information about daylilies, so be sure to check the HOME PAGE by clicking that little "house" icon in the far upper left of the new layout - or by clicking on the big All Things Plants logo to the left of the Banner photo on any page where it appears. Either thing will take you to the ATP home page, where the articles and other Daylily Week items will be found!

And -- providing I manage to get the rest of it written -- Rolling my eyes. -- this week Char and I will start up the
ATP Hybridizer Series
again! So watch for it to pop up in the Daylily Forum soon!

Special thanks to all the members who have helped Dave, Trish, Char, Sharon and I pull this together! I tip my hat to you.

I think an annual Daylilies week is a great idea. Each year it could get better and better. Daylilies are such a popular flower. And Just look at all those fabulous raffle prizes.

The daylily writing contest was just a perfect intro into daylily week. And with daylily week, maybe more new people with discover the daylily forum here. Heck, maybe people that are already regulars at ATP might pop in and check out the Daylily Forum and join us in our fun.

I have never seen double garden ideas like we are having yesterday and today for Daylily Week. I noticed it yesterday but thought it was only a one time thing. Yet today we have another double garden idea. Great things are happening on daylily week!

And Char did a fabulous banner for today. Very usual and unique. Thumbs up

Everyone. Trish has a post on the Site Talk Forum asking about which Plants weeks we want next year. Let's all go and make sure we get a daylily week next year and every year.

Now that Dayliles Week is officially over I did want to say what a fantastic week I thought it was. All that work that went into daylilies week this year. Great job by all. Our moderators did a wonderful job organizing and making sure there were plenty of Articles to be running all week. And excellently written ones at that. Just a fabulous effort for daylily week by all involved this year. Thumbs up Hurray!
