> David- Wonderful news about your daughter!
> Andrea- Your container is lovely!  Have you tried using the potting soil
> with the moisture retaining crystals?  It really cuts down on the
> watering!  I use it for my smaller containers and a  cement container
> that tends to dry out quicker. Your back yard looks like a tropical
> jungle!  Thanks for giving us a peek!
> Eva- Sorry you couldn't make the daylily show, but there's a sale in
> August and a meeting in October with a great speaker.  I'll send you
> more info.
> Now onto my show news!  I must be Irish, because I did really well in my
> back to back shows!  It nearly killed me with all the preparation, set
> up, classification and other responsibilities added onto exhibiting, but
> it was worth the effort.
> In the Asharoken Garden Club Small Standard Show, I won the Sweepstakes
> Award for Horticulture and received two of the five possible Award of
> Merits! I had entered 40 horticultural specimens and got 16 blue
> ribbons.  This was my first time entering in a standard show.  Our
> district has a show in October that I'm thinking about entering, but I
> need some pointers from Auralie before then!  I was so excited that
> night that all my attempts at sleeping failed me!  Then yesterday at our
> Accredited Daylily Show, which I co-chaired, I won Best in Show and Best
> Double (with the same daylily)! I had four daylilies that qualified for
> top honors. This was my third time showing, so I'm pretty amazed that I
> won! Actually, the daylily deserves the credit, not me!
> My sister and her family are here for the long weekend, but everyone had
> weekend plans, so no one saw my awards until I got home.  My house is in
> a shambles, what with the bottles, packing materials, extra blooms, etc.
> left over from two shows in one weekend!  Not to mention that I have
> four young adults staying here!  Robyn asked me "why do you do it?"
> Good question!  I guess it's some sort of obsession!
> One of my daylily friends and I are taking a two day garden hopping trip
> to PA this week.  I hope it will be very relaxing.  I know it will be
> fun!  I have to credit my husband for putting up with all of the
> commotion!
>  I will be posting pictures of both shows sometime in the future.
