|Hey everyone, I just wanted to post a link to Lyle's 2013 daylilies over on his cubit's site|

|Makes me smile to see DYE in those parentheses. Great going Lyle. |
I too, love Haboob.

|Everyone should check out his 2014 introduction ADA MINKLER. I believe that was the runner-up seedling for last year's King Of The Hill award -- one incredible daylily!!!|

|Gratulations, Lyle. All are so very nice.|
I especially love Butterfly Elegance, Heidi Lynn, and of course, Haboob.
Butterfly Elegance has such wonderful substance and rounded
I had never heard the term Haboob until Lyle showed us the
amazing photos of the dust storm. Recently a very large
one began in Australia.

|By the way, Lyle is having a great sale through his cubit. It's one of the forum topics for anyone interested.|

|Thanks for the nice comments! I don't seem to have much time to post as of late, with the Arizona Clubs hosting the Region 7 meeting most of my time is working with them to insure a successful meeting.|
Most of my 2013 introductions have been sold out, I don't sell my new plants after I have used them heavily in hybridizing and Ada Minkler was used a lot. I have had many requests for AM and should have plenty of healthy, strong, plants to offer in spring 2014.
Again, it is always special to have your work critiqued by friends.

Thanks Polly - For the nice comments!
We have broke 3 records in Phoenix, Hottest Summer, Coldest Winter, and most rain for January. I hope we break a record for longest Spring..

|Beautiful blooms, Lyle! It's starting to get warmer here now, and I'm already feeling that spring fever!|
Jan 31, 2013 11:22 AM CST
Good one Lyle,

|Beautiful collection Lyle! Can you add them to the database, pretty please? Or add them to this thread and I can then import them?|

|Betty - It is still cold in the morning here, it warms up and then turns cold, the good news is we have a warming trend for the next few days.|
Leslie - I hope all is well with you, and your family? I lined out the last of your daylilies and they should be nice for shipping in April.
Thanks Sue! I will post my plants here.

|Lyle, your photos are so pretty. I think I have asked you before if you use a white umbrella, or how the colors come out so well. Most purple daylilies turn out red on my Canon DSLR. And, to blue on my Nikon Coolpix. Of course, it helps that you have such beautiful daylilies to take photos of!!!!|

|Thanks Lyle! I imported the one, Heidi Lynn, and I am waiting for Dave to finish importing the names for the newest registrations from AHS so I can add the rest of your photos.|

|I use a Panasonic Lumix, usually set on Self Portrait (just a point and shoot camera) it also has a macro setting which helps for close-ups. I think most cameras also have a feature” forced flash off” this will help with the darker colors. As for the use of a white umbrella, I have used the umbrella for bright sun shots, but my favorite thing to use is just a plain inexpensive piece of printer paper, this gives me just the right amount of filter in a bright light shots. |
The photos in the hybridizing area are taken under 50% shade clothe, this will aid the color holding longer with a darker bloom as well. Darker daylilies in areas with afternoon sun will hold their dark color longer in the garden
One thing that frustrated me most (I'm sure everyone has had this happen) is that awesome bloom with amazing color, and you are unable to capture it with your camera, no matter how many settings you try.
One other factor in a daylily photo, is the grow zone in which the photo is taken, Heidi Lynn (posted above) is a good example. The northern photo is an area that has seen -24 in the winter months, this year 2 months of below 32 deg.
The southern garden (both photos of Heidi Lynn is in full sun) photo shows how HL looks in a mild winter climate.
Thanks Sue, I will check the database for the update.
