Huntsville Botanical Garden

The last garden on our tour at the Regional was the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Again I have to thank Marsha Williams from TN for the use of her images. Mrs. Rosa Bella Van Valkenburgh at the age of 90 years young is the care taken of this amazing daylily garden in the Botanical Garden. At our regional Rosa Valkenburgh was honored by an assistant of the Mayor who declared June. 17th to be Rosa Bella Van Valkenburgh Day. Had you been there to hear the decelerations to her you would say that she certainly deserves a day in her honor. Also she has a lovely daylily named for her .
ROSA VAN BALKENBURGH  This image was taken in the garden of Bill Waldrop.
Now the images of the daylilies that Rosa take care of, I might add that she does a wonderful job of it to.
                                                     There are 850 varieties grown here.
