Today, I ended up taking half the day off as a sick day. It makes me feel guilty to write a blog with the smattering of photos I managed this AM. But, believe me, the 4 hours of hard sleep and other viral symptoms are as real as the beauty of the flower. My first sick day in the year I have worked there . . . well, almost a year. I’m sure my crazy shifts in the yard added to the exhaustion.
Of course, there are no new blooms today. I sort of like the fall in daylily-ville, because you don’t have to look as hard to be sure you didn’t miss one.
This weekend is camping weekend. I also hope to get the daylily roots washed for my coworkers so I can mail them on Wednesday next week. I have a few more divisions to do . . . some of my co-workers down South will do better with the evergreens. I just haven’t gotten that far yet. And, I have a musical pots thing that needs to happen. But, before that MORE garden soil to buy. Jeez.
In thinking of next year, I think I will pull two of my three Stellas completely out of their pots and add divisions of Pink & Cream and Yellow Punch. They have earned their stripes as pretty rebloomers this year. The color and shape is better than Stella.
With all these pots, next year I may have a daylily yard sale. I love to give them away. And, if the pots do well, I will have more than enough for that. So, maybe a little one-day sale or something. I need to think about it. Anyone with any experience out there? Or is online better?
For winter, I want to blog more about my poinsettias, orchids, and Amaryllis. I actually may look at other Christmas bloomers. I got the coolest Mexican pottery at . . . Walmart. It was a few weeks ago . . . amazing prices. Anyway, thinking of some winter wonder bloomers in there. Ah, it is time to sleep, again.
