All of these pages, and most especially the SEEDLING pages are mainly for our own records and contain a lot of information that will not be interesting, (or make any sense), to the average flower lover.
However, I hope they give some pleasure to other daylily enthusiasts and friends who just love to wade through picture after picture of beautiful flowers.
I would have to call this more of a "BLOG", than a real website.
We choose to supplement the documentation of our hybridizing program in this way because, as long as we pay Homestead to keep our site active, we can't lose our "notes" and we can share our passions with friends and other hybridizers. And Homestead is most generous with space, so there is room for a LOT of pictures.
You'll never find fancy, professional-looking web pages here. I'm not a fancy, professional type. I AM a writer, of sorts, but I write like I talk...so this is a laid-back, loosely woven mess of whatever I feel and think. (And it gives me something to do when we and the daylilies are waiting for spring. )
As for the daylilies....they are our obsession. It's a great pleasure to have a hobby Richard and I can both enjoy so much. Bloom season is like Christmas in July, with each day bringing new surprises. Once the 'babies' start to bloom, and we can "ooh" and "ahh" over each new beauty we've helped create....the web site usually takes a back seat until the flowers have faded.
Again, please feel free to 'walk' through these cyber-gardens at will. LIKE our gardens, the site is in a constant state of confusion and change. Come back often.
