|I have no hybridizing genes either Sharon. You & I are appreciators of the art created by nature & helped along by hybridizers. We can love them without ever knowing if they have tet parents or how many siblings were registered from a cross. That's okay. If not for people like us, who would be around to appreciate them just simply for their beauty without wondering about their origins.
Somehow I think Uncle Bill is smiling.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

You have some really pretty lilies. I like to listen to the hybredizer's talk but won't be creating any new ones myself. Requires to much patience and a better talent for observation than I have. They seem to be aware of every single nuance of the plants.
I am just now beginning to be able to identify the types.

|So many colors, shapes, and sizes Sharon and they are all just beautiful. WOW!|
My daylily parade is about the same time as yours.

|Anni, you said it just right. We are the appreciators of the art, created by nature, and adorned in new finery by hybridizers. I love them, no matter their parentage.|
It's a little like dogs or cats or even people. If they love us and if we love and take care of them, then does it really matter what their brand is? I don't think so.
Marilyn, my biggest problem if I were hybridizing would be letting go of those seedlings that didn't do what they are supposed to do. I'd end up in a teeny tiny house in the middle of acres and acres of daylilies.
Vic, the way I figure, we've got about 2 more weeks of dwindling blooms. When I was teaching it seemed that the daylilies stopped blooming just in time for me to start getting ready to go back to school.

I can see why you love daylilies so much from your photos. They look like they were hand painted by an artist. Simply lovely.
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

|Lyn, thank you for those words. Made me smile!|
