Thunderous showers yesterday, but the ol' chang dynasty x ccc always opens wells, I have like 10 pods on this already.

I was down to twenty blooms this morning on daylilies, with only a few dozen buds left at most. every few years our season extend late allowing for some rebloom, but even if instant rebloom works in the north, I like to see vigor the best, increased clump size with many scapes, when I see those out of my seedlings they are marked for keepers to breed that trait line in to my stuff.

Lovely daylilies. I am not a fan of spiders. I just HATE them. I do mostly leave the ones in the garden alone but really I have to keep reminding myself not to get the can of Raid!

The ones with PC (Purple Cheetah?) in the background are really looking good!
