This past week, DH and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. It’s harder for me to get out than it used to be, but I didn’t want to miss our annual trip. For ten years we have been celebrating our anniversary by visiting daylily farms and finding new plants we would like to add to our garden.
The first nursery we visited was Frank Nyikos’ Walnut Grove Nursery. Lots of beautiful butterflies there, as well as daylilies and hostas.
We found some lovely daylilies and a beautiful hosta. Frank has wonderfully healthy plants and takes care packaging them for the trip home.
We saw a sign by the road that directed us to Teresa’s Dazzling Daylilies. I sat on a chair in the shade while Russell perused the daylilies. It was a beautiful day, not too hot, a little breezy. Very nice in the shade.
Teresa was very friendly and happy to dig anything we wanted. We enjoyed talking to her. Her gardens are neat and tidy, with all the plants well marked.
The next day we visited Windy Ridge Daylily Farm.
Another very nice day. It was pleasant to sit beside the garden and we had fun choosing the flowers we want to add to our garden.
When we got home, DH potted the plants and put them in the wading pool with an inch or two of water in the pool. That will keep them comfy and help them grow on until the heat and drought break. Then we can plant them in the garden.
It took me a few days to recover from the trip, but I’m glad we went. I’m thankful for DH and the many years we’ve had together. Here’s to many more, my Sweet.
