News to report...

I received a message from Randy last night that he has CLOSED the garden and that it was time to stop working so hard.
If any of you know him, you also know that you'll be hard pressed to find many more generous. He is always sharing of his time and the daylily's he grew. Sadly, I will miss his garden but also know that its time he enjoyed more time with his grandkids.

I tip my hat to you.

So sorry to read this. Apparently his wife, Cindy, passed away in the last year or so. I bought many daylilies over the years from Packrat on the Lily Auction. Cindy always dealt with the communications, and she was a delightful person. The plants were always top-notch.

That's really too bad, but good for him. I also got daylilies from them through the Lily Auction...

Yes, I was happy with what I got from him on the LA too. Wishing him enjoyment of his plants and life. Thumbs up

Always a joy to work with and so helpful. I miss Cindy terribly.

Tim Herrington named a plant for Cindy, with Randy's blessing. The photo below, was posted with Randy's permission. A beautiful bloom just like Cindy's personality.
