September Meeting

Our meeting is September 16th at 10 am at the Cooperative Extension offices in Voorheesville. We do not have a speaker, but we will have DVD’s of daylily gardens – it will be nice to see the hybridizers and their gardens. Our business meeting will discuss officer elections and the HADS display garden, along with other business. The display garden is in need of help to get it ready for fall. If you are able to stay after the meeting to chip in with the work, please bring weeding tools. Any help you can give will be appreciated greatly.

Do You Love Colchicums?

Many people will remember Kathy Purdy, who spoke at the Winter Doldrums party last February. Kathy has collected and planted colchicums at her home in Oxford, NY for years. Come see one of the country’s largest collections of colchicums. Kathy Purdy invites you to view the colchicum collection in her garden on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 11 am to 4 pm, rain or shine. Kathy has over 50 different kinds of these fall-blooming bulbs, many of which will be in bloom at the end of September. Each variety is labeled and attractively situated in the garden with companion plants. Visitors are welcome to bring their own lunch and enjoy it on the screened deck. Set your GPS to 565 Moran

Dan Bachman to Speak at Hudson Valley Iris
and Daylily Society

The Hudson Valley Iris and Daylily Society (HVIDS) will have Dan Bachman as a guest speaker at their November 5th meeting. The meeting will be held in the Community Room of the Marlboro Free Library, 1251 Route 9W, Marlboro, New York. They begin gathering at 1:30 socializing over snacks and beverages and the meeting starts at 2:00 pm. Marlboro is about 1½ hours south of Albany.

Cold Tater Stomp, Bachman, 2016

Dan Bachman hybridizes daylilies at The Valley of the Daylilies in Lebanon, Ohio. You can see his daylilies at www.thevalleyofthedaylilies.com
Many of us have Dan’s daylilies in our gardens and it will be a treat to hear him speak.

Holiday Party

Yes, I know it’s still September, but the holidays can creep up on us! Since many of our HADS holiday parties in previous years have conflicted with the Hosta Society (UNYHS – Upstate New York Hosta Society) and so many of our members belong to both societies, we have decided to combine our celebrations this year. We will be meeting on December 9th at the Fellowship Hall of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Scotia. More details will follow –
stay tuned…..

Sad News

It is with great sadness that I write of the passing of Audrey Zeh on Saturday, August 12th. Although Audrey had been too ill to
come to the meetings in recent years, she
kept up with the news of HADS, reading the UPDATE and enjoying the daylilies. Audrey was the HADS Historian for many years and it is thanks to her diligence and that of Pat and Don Salhoff in keeping the HADS records that we were able to see some of our history at
the HADS 25th birthday party last year. The service for Audrey will be private. Our
heartfelt condolences go out to her sister, Christl Schmidt.

Picnic!

Daylily season is in full swing – our gardens are strutting their stuff! It’s a perfect time for our Picnic in the garden at the Cooperative Extension office in Voorheesville. Our display garden will be gorgeous, thanks to Pat and Don Salhoff and all who participated in the weeding party.

The picnic is Saturday, July 15th at 11 am in the garden gazebo. We will also have access to the building in case of weather issues, but so far (fingers crossed) the weather seems to be cooperating.

HADS will provide sandwiches, soda, coffee and water. Please bring a dish to share. Seating in the gazebo is limited so also bring a folding chair.

We have also invited the hosta society (UNYHS) and the iris society (CHIS). We will need a count of the people planning to attend in order to have enough sandwiches, so please contact Carol Volungus (daylilly@juno.com) or me
(S. Kronau – skronau@nycap.rr.com)
by Thursday, July 13th if you are planning to attend. Apologies for the short notice,
my daylilies have been very demanding . .

It will be great fun, so we hope to see you there!

Plants for August Sale

Cindi is still working on coordinating the August Sale, so if you have daylilies that you’d like to donate to the sale, please contact:
Cindi Jones at cindijones58@gmail.com. We need to know what daylilies are coming in for the sale so labels can be
