|Returned late Sunday evening from a four day trip to Hattiseburg Mississippi, saw lots of daylilies even tho the gardens were way past peak. There were four gardens on tour and the Watts garden was outstanding with thousands of daylilies grown to perfection as always. They won every award except two.|
This bed is about 300' long and 12' wide, the first thing you see when you exit the bus, this leads to the many other raised beds located around the home.
A few of the many beds.
All the beds are raised, and all the daylilies were in huge clumps.
This is EMMA'S CURLS which won best UF at the meeting.
A huge clump of LILLIAN'S JACK TEMPLE in the center of one of the beds.
Long bed nearest to the lake
Bed overlooking the lake.
Will add some photos from the other gardens later.

|This is FigLily Acres, own by Ed and Nancy Chain, the sister of Barbara Watts. They have many huge fig trees and daylilies. Know nothing about the wine bottle.|
This is the Red Bed, not a lot blooming that day
This was different, more daylilies and Kathleen
Couldn't decide which to ride back to the motel.
This is the Sally Lake Bed, 95 seedlings from Region 14 hybridizers. Only about 20 were blooming that day due to the early bloom. Martha Brazzelton from Gunnersville Alabama won best seedling.
