Ohio, January 2013.....brrrrrr!!!!

     Happy new year to all my daylily friends this fine January day.  The holidays came and went in a blur and I don't know about you, but I am a creature of habit and love my routine, so I am glad that the holidays are behind us.  We have had three snow events in the past two weeks here in Ohio which is fairly normal for this time of the year.  Somehow I got everything I wanted to get done before the ground froze and got covered with snow.  Take a look at the top picture and you can see the front of my house after about 15 inches of snow has fallen.  The photo below it is of my Blazer and my Honda in the back of the driveway.  Gives you an idea of how much snow has fallen.  The photos at the bottom of the page are of the daylily seedlings I have in the garage.  I keep some seedlings in containers in the garage over the winter, but this winter I have had voles digging up the dirt and actually killing a few seedlings.  The top picture shows the seedlings before temps really dropped, and the very bottom picture shows the seedlings now, where we have had temps in the single digits over night.  They literally almost folded over.  All daylilies that were dormants have gone fully dormant at this point.  Any rust that I saw on the foliage is completely dead.  I love that winter kills the rust.  Anyway, I hope to highlight some blooms from the past season in the coming weeks and get back to writing some each Sunday, so I hope you readers check back in to see some cool stuff.  We all need some color to brighten a rather dreary season.  Happy new year to all of you and your families!
