I finally had a chance to catch up on looking at a few websites yesterday. While surfing through Charlotte's hybridizer updates I thought I'd check out the Garden of the Week. What a pleasant surprise to see Vickie's (blue23rose) garden was last Saturday's featured Garden of the Week!
Congratulations, and Thank you for a beautiful tour of your garden Vickie! Your clump of 'Parfait' is stunning and there's some great looking seedlings pictured too. Thumbs up

The GOTW started on Dec. 11th so there's a few other gardens to view along with Vickie's. There will be 5 new gardens added, one each Saturday through Feb 12th. Here's a link to the Garden of the Week page.

Well, that's pretty darn cool, Vicky. Everything is presented so well in your garden. I feel inspired to try to do better with my garden areas next year. I hope that attitude carries through to when the ground isn't frozen hard as a rock. Smiling

Thank you all so much for the sweet comments! And thank you Char, for sharing it here. Smiling

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 Crossing Fingers! 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!

Thanks so much, everyone!

Because the virtual tour includes several seasons, I think it makes my garden look so much more lush than it actually is. In summer, you don't get to see the irises, peonies, chrysanthemums, etc. A lot of the cosmos blooms after the daylilies are done, but I love that it fills those spaces where the daylilies have finished blooming.

Beautiful gardens, Vickie! Your daylilies are gorgeous, of course, but it's such a treat to see what beauty you've created for the rest of your growing season. Well done! Hurray!

The International Garden of the Week on Charlotte's website has posted two more gardens.The garden of Carol Hunter from Illinois was featured on January 15th and this past Saturday, January 22, Springwood Gardens the garden of hybridizer Karol Emmerich from Minnesota was added. Such a treat to sit with a warm cup of coffee and enjoy all the beautiful images on these cold mornings!

A quick note, I've added a link to Charlotte's Hybridizer's Corner in the Daylilies forum info box. The info box is to the right of the thread listing. On the Hybridizers Corner you will find an extensive list of hybridizers and their websites. There's a box at the top right that lists the newly updated websites.
