Been way too busy with work and grandkid activity. Five boys are in basketball and the lone girl is in gymnastics...so I have been on a roll...lol.

Daylilies, not so much.

Until......

I planted 4 seedlings last spring of:
SILVER SWORD

Thumb of 2016-03-23/Ahead/96b42b

X TETRFKXVICKI seedling.

Thumb of 2016-03-23/Ahead/e2b39c

Two of the four are very large (for here) and will most likely bloom is season.

My season has officially begun!

I agree
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

I agree They should be quite beautiful if they look like their parents!

Gorgeous parents! No wonder you are excited, and the plant foliage
looks fantastic. Is it dormant foliage?

TETRFKXVICKI is stunning
I just sprouted some seedlings of it that I got from you on the LA. They've got a long way to go, but I'm still excited. Looking forward to seeing your new blooms. You've bred some awesome lilies Steve Thumbs up
