Mississippi Gulf Coast Daylily Society

What a grand time I had visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast Daylily Society.  Just a fantastic group of folks.
They had told me there would be a snack served. An understatement if ever there was one.  There was just about any kind of finger food you could think of there and some great desserts and fruit salads.
Here is an image when they were about half way set up. These tables were full by the time for the meeting to start,
They had a great welcome
and information tables.     

You could even take home a big hand
full of hot peppers.             
As the room started filling with members I snapped a few images. If anyone grows the daylily named BILL ROBINSON, well here is Bill in person with his lovely wife Teresia.
It was great to see Tommy Maddox again too. He even brought his radio so we could keep up withe the Auburn / MS, State game.

I am sure anyone who was at the Region 14 spring meeting will remember Chris Rea and what a find job he did. He really has some lovely things coming on in his seedlings. This is Chris and Bill in serious conversation.
Chris has just started blogging recently so be sure and follow his blog to track what he is up to.
As the meeting began, all business was taken care of before I presented my program.I was thrilled to see the crowd. Only wish I could remember every ones name. They were all very gracious and I really  enjoyed  talking to many of them .

After the meeting was finished I got to visit the garden of C. P Winters. Although there was not a lot of daylilies in bloom I could tell she is doing a wonderful job growing here daylilies and many other plants too. Just a lovely garden and I can imagine it in bloom with hundreds of daylilies. I brought home a couple Amarillo's and crepe myrtles. Thanks C. P.

She grows her Roses well too.

And what a lovely collection of bird houses.             I then traveled back to Ellisvile Al where I spent the night with dear friends Henry and Helen Boykin.  Helen has been hard at work repairing where a car ran through her chain link fence and took out the watering system and a few daylily beds. Came home with some real prizes form there. No not daylilies but home made jellies, canned beans, and pears as well as home made kraut.  So you guys can see what a wonderful weekend I had.  
Thanks to the Officers and members of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Daylily Society for the opportunity to speak to your wonderful group. Hope to see all of you at the fall meeting in Birmingham on the 24th of September.


  1. Sharon, your pictures really captured the moment of the meeting. The program was entertaining and informative. Steve and I are ready to start hybridizing with your easy "how to" instructions. Thank you for sharing your hard earned knowledge with our club. Blessings to you, your family, and may your daylilies live long and multiply.

  2. It's actually very complicated in this busy life to listen news on TV, so I simply use internet for that reason, and obtain the most recent news.

  7. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.
