Bumper crop

Proud of my thrivin’ daylillies. We share an identical lineage, on Daddy’s side.

About travellinbaen

I'm a 40 year old lawyer living in Ridgeland, Mississippi. I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.

    Ain’t you somethin? Mine are doing well also. I’ve finally gotten them going again the best yet since the storm. I’ve been busy cross pollinating hoping to get some seed pods and start a new plant. The best fertilizer is epsom salt – they love it and it is fairly cheap. ES has made all the difference in the world for all my plants. My hydrangea looks gorgeous and is a deep purple. I love being out in my yard, watering and drinking my glass of wine – that is what I enjoy the most!

    • I’ll have to try out that epsom salt. Can’t say I enjoy the yard work, but sprinklin’ a bit of that stuff couldn’t be too hard.

      That’s one reason I appreciate daylillies–minimal upkeep! Mine are pretty special to me though. These started out in my Grandmother’s very large flower garden many decades ago, descendants were transplanted along the way to Pascagoula by my Dad and finally up to my house in Ridgeland. It’s a permanent and happy reminder of her. And the Scamp loves ’em too. One day she will appreciate having some bit of a physical connection to an ancestor she never knew.

    That’s awesome TB! I still have a descendant of my grandmother’s pothos. One of the chores at her house that she didn’t mind a tot doing was watering the plants and the garden.

    Gorgeous! I love lillies. But even more so that they are descendants from your Grandmother’s house..that is an awesome tradition to have.

    Many of mine came from my mom – the ones that are planted all along my fence. I’m looking for some really bright red ones to buy right now. There is a huge daylily farm in Hattiesburg that I would love to go to sometime. Or if you want you can go to Roycroft online and look at lillies for days that you can buy; however, the shipping is not cheap. My sister just gave me a antique rose of my grandmother’s that she rooted but I’m having trouble keeping it watered enough in this severe drought we’ve got going in South MS. I will not be happy if I kill that off!
