Thank you all so much for the sweet comments! And thank you Char, for sharing it here.
I even had fun going back and looking at the pictures myself as if through fresh eyes. My garden has changed a lot over the years, but that is what keeps it interesting. Case in point, my beautiful 'Kwanzan' Japanese cherry tree in photo #2 was cut down just a few weeks ago. I was so sad to see it go, but the thick roots were heaving up the walkway and they were also affecting other landscape plants. However, next year, the daylilies and other plants will enjoy more sun and I am hoping their performance will improve. I will have to find something with a smaller footprint for that spot. Or maybe I can wrangle a bit more lawn out of my dh to place a tree a little further away from those plants
I did love working under the shade of that tree.
Charlotte's website is a great way of staying in the loop on anything to do with daylilies, and I so appreciate her efforts. It is my go to site to find so much information and she does a fantastic job of putting together those garden tours.
Betty, up until I retired last year, I was unable to really keep up with all of it. But what an awesome time I had last summer taking my time each day to tend to whatever I felt like doing, whenever I wanted! I also enjoyed the luxury of taking pictures in the early morning when everything was fresh. Can't wait until spring again!
