What a wet year!!!

Well daylily friends, it's been a very wet year.  In fact the wettest on record for our area in Northeast, Ohio. They've only been keeping records for 141 years.  Anyway, I've always wanted to write about my favorite garden flower and share my opinions, insight, and experiences with others.  I've been hybridizing since 1999, and boy have I made some mistakes.  I guess the key to making those mistakes is learning from them,
and I think I've done a pretty good job of that.  I'm gonna try and post a photo of my front yard taken at
the end of October so you can see just how wet it was.  I've never had so much standing water for such
a great length of time.  Somehow the daylilies seem to have adapted to it.  They are very tough perennials. That's what I love about them.  I'll try and post more pictures from this past season for you to enjoy in the coming months.  Love to hear any feedback and welcome your insights as well.  Happy gardening to you all.


  1. Paul,

    Excellent rice crop ! Or I should say rice growing conditions. It will be interesting to see how the daylilies do next year after all of this rain.

  2. aneogarden,

    You can say that again. Today I look out the front door and it looks more like a pond than a daylily field. This will be a year none of us will soon forget! Thanks for the comment!
