Neil: thank you for sharing this article about Shannon's Garden Centre. It sounds and looks a lovely place, the kind you can spend hours just browsing. Don't you just love them? I do! BTW, my younger daughter is named Shannon, so of course I had to read it!

Here's one of my newest daylilies in gratitude, When Vampires Roar:
