Hello all. Thought It might be nice to share pictures from the gardens on tour at the AHS convention in Columbus Ohio.
Here is the link to the AHS website that gives more info on each garden http://www.columbusdaylilies.u...
It might take me a couple days to post it all but feel free to look and comment.
The first garden I saw was Heavenly gardens - Jamie and Dianna Gossard
Lisa - It's great to see these photos. I look forward to more from you. That gigantic metal daylily sculpture is amazing! Did you happen to find out who the artist was who made it? The closeups of the four Gossard intros are wonderful! Had it cooled off in Ohio by the time you toured the gardens?
Hi Debra! Yes temps had cooled but area was still very dry. The tour gardens looked so much better than I expected given the weather this last month. We actually had light rain Saturday during the tours which helped keep it cooler and showed which ones held up in the rain (substance). You will notice that the pictures for saturday become fewer in each garden for this reason.
The daylily sculpture in the Gossard gardens came from an artist in Michigan (Gossard got it last year at the regional there). This year they had several of these for both silent auction (went for $325- $450 each) and the raffle (of course I did not win one) There will be more pictures of other ones in other gardens. I do not know the artist name butr someone else who was there (or at regional last year) may know and chime in.
