Before Ange and I went to the Wisconsin Daylily Society plant sale in Madison last Saturday, I made a firm commitment to myself that this year I really needed to exercise some self-restraint with my purchases. My goal was seven daylilies--no more than eight, right? Well, I came home with twelve; thirteen including my freebie. All told, the outcome *could have* been much, much worse. (Especially when there are between 600-700 cultivars to choose from!) My new plants are potted up, sitting on the warm brick patio where they will remain for the next 3-4 weeks building up a root base. This gives me some time to decide where each one will get placed in the garden.
After the sale, Ange and I met up with our very good friends from Madison. We had a delicious lunch and had a chance to catch up. It is always great to see them.
Even with the oppressive heat, this day was as close to perfect as it gets!
