Busy Week

I don't know where to start....

On Thursday, my Daylily partner in crime, Nichole and I went to NYC to the Martha Stewart Show. It was wonderful and exciting. We then went on to the Macy’s Flower Show. I am a Long Island girl but I had never been to the Macy’s in Manhattan. So going there was exciting. You then add beautiful plants and flowers… Amazing!!!

Martha Show

Macy's Flower Show

On Friday I started to clean up the leaves I missed in my front gardens. This turned out to be a bigger project then I thought. By the time I was done, a large bush was removed and all the pachysandra.

I planted my new trees and shrubs from the Arbor Day Foundation in my newly found space. Right now they are just sticks but some day they will be beautiful. A hydrangea tree will be replacing the bush I removed. In the mean time, I will be planting more daylilies and new seedlings in this bed because it is in a great sunny location.

I have also spent a lot of time just standing in my yard staring at my spring flowers.

The Crocuses are done blooming and the Daffodils have just begun.

One last piece of exciting news, my very first daylily seedlings have emerged!!! I am so excited!!!

I have three seedlings from my Fairytale Pink – Janice Brown cross and one seedling from my Little Bee – Janice Brown cross. I hope more pop up soon.

The flowers are quite pretty, and I was excited for you that you were able to see the Martha Stewart Show in NYC. Thanks for thinking of me, I miss you more.

Quite pretty, thanks for including me in your update. Martha Stewart must have been really exciting, very often I miss NYC and its sights. I am happy for you.

Hi Janice, I'm so glad you posted your blog address :-) I especially love your garden helpers.

What kind of daylilies are you focusing on for hybridizing? I've got lots of dividing to do this spring and like to help out new daylily folk.

I was so tempted to do the Martha thing and the Macy's show, glad you got to go.
