a plant sale at a local farm today and my, oh my! What a treat.<br>> A
couple of older folks who had lived and gardened prolifically in
the<br>> same place for 40 years...what amazing gardens they have!! Of
course,<br>> before I left there I had gotten their name and phone
number plus an<br>> invitation to return in a few more weeks when the
daylilies come into<br>> bloom. They have in excess of 100 cultivars of
daylilies alone! They<br>> were selling off their divisions of
daylilies, hostas, etc. I bought a<br>> few and they gave me a few more
as freebies for the kids when my kids<br>> started telling them all
about their own garden patches. Here is what I<br>> got
today:<br>><br>><br>> Hemerocallis:<br>> "Pretty

Pink" x2<br>> "Gay Cravat" X2<br>> "Purple Magic"<br>> "Dresden
Beauty"<br>> "Cup of Sugar" X2<br>> "Song of Roland" X2<br>><br>> I also
bought a Huechera "Dales' Strain"<br>><br>> All of this on top of
another local plant sale I went to at our community<br>center over the
weekend, where I bought:<br>><br>> 2 red canna<br>> 2 yellow canna<br>>
2 spider wort<br>> 1 yucca<br>> 2 Hemerocallis "Diamond
Anniversary"<br>> 1 Red Oriental Poppy<br>> 3 California poppy<br>> 3
Coleus<br>><br>> No cultivar names for most of this stuff...just things
people dig up and<br>> bring to a sale, but I am perfectly okay with not
knowing this info.<br>><br>><br>> all the stuff from the weekend is
already in the ground, now I have to<br>> plant the stuff from today .
Ohmigoodness...what happened to my plan not<br>> to buy any more plants,
just rearrange what I already have? :-) Yeah,<br>> like that plan was
doomed to failure, wasn't it???<br>><br>><br>> Melody, IA (Z
