Here are a very few pictures from Nicole Harrys today. After a couple f pictures, it just become sensory overload along with some chatting and the camera gets forgotten. I wont forget what I saw tho nodding If I came away with anything...it large..huge really. She had more large flowered daylilies than Ive ever seen. They just make you giggle.

This was a flower on the table, I know you cant tell, as I should have backed up to get both flowers, but if you look at the little bit of daylily beside it, the little looking one is really big, this white thing is a monster...its the biggest round daylily Ive ever seen.

Pam - Wow! Those are some sensational blooms! Looks like you had a really awesome time. I think I would enjoy seeing such a show. I've read how wonderful this event is and how many daylily nurseries it entails. Sounds like the place to be! Thank you for sharing such beautiful bloom photos!

That last one is gorgeous! What is the name?

Oh, Pam, THANK YOU for posting these pictures! Ours now has two scapes but blooms are weeks away. I know you had a great time. I remember how quickly we were on daylily overloaded surrounded by SO many gorgeous blooms.

Was it a named variety this year? Last year it was a seedling.

Mecca Madness has yet to be registered.
Nicole's past gifts (2013, 2014) were seedlings.
The Mecca site this year promised a "named" daylily.

Just curious to see if she kept her promise THIS year.
