Notes from the Meeting of June 16th

We discussed changing the date of our October meeting from October 20th to the 13th. The Iris Society is hosting their Regional Meeting on the 20th and it would prevent many members from joining us for our meeting.
(Update: Since the meeting, we have been able to change the date officially to October 13th. Our speaker is able to make the change and the Cooperative Extension offices are available. Our October meeting date is now October 13th.)

Debi Chowdhury asked that everyone be reminded that we have a Sunshine Committee that sends notes and flowers to members who are ill or in need of a bit of cheer. If you know of someone who would benefit from being remembered with a card or flowers, please be sure to let Debi know. You can reach her at:
debichowdhury@yahoo.com

Frank and Sharon are still not getting information on babysitter plants in people’s gardens in a timely manner. The contract that people sign when they receive a babysitter plant will now be updated to indicate that information on the number of fans needs to be received by the Babysitter Committee by May 1st.

It was decided that HADS will supply sandwiches, water and soda for the picnic.

If your Babysitter has a sufficient number of fans, Frank or Sharon will ask you to bring it in for the Members’ Auction on May 12th.

It will then be divided for sale in the auction. You will receive a fan to return to your garden as a ‘thank you’ for taking such good care of the plant while it was growing. Whether or not your plant comes back for auction, it’s important to let Frank or Sharon know how many fans the plant has this year. Frank and Sharon keep track of the plants each year to determine their ‘garden worthiness’ and whether the plants are doing well in our climate. If they pout and refuse to grow year after year, it may be that the plant needs a warmer zone and will be given to a Region 4 society further south. In any case, please remember to update Frank and Sharon on the progress of your babysitters each year.

Update on the Members’ Auction

The Members’ Auction is only a month away but plans are already coming together to acquire interesting daylilies to entice our members. We will have some plants from Bill Waldrop, who spoke at our Doldrums party and others from Melanie Mason and other hybridizers. Many of our daylily enthusiasts buy more expensive daylilies to enjoy in their gardens. Over time the plants grow and people would like to share them, but find that the plants are just too special to sell for $10 or $15 in our annual sale at Faddegon’s.

Daylilies in artricle:
Burnt Hickory and Opa Klaus
by Bill Waldrop

In the program that Bill has planned he will speak about a new double daylily that he’s made by crossing a seedling with Sebastian the Crab. Bill will also focus on his new double, OPA KLAUS and show us his introductions from 2018 and 2017, plus many additional introductions that have received honors from members
of AHS.

Bill Waldrop attended Marietta High School and Georgia State University before graduating from Mercer Law School. He practiced law for 30 years in Brunswick and Marietta. He started growing daylilies around 1995 and he liked them so much he eventually removed his entire ½ acre vegetable garden and instead planted just daylilies. Many friends came to see the daylilies and there were several newspaper articles about his garden. His daylily garden was featured on “Gardener’s Diary” on HGTV in 2001. As his interest grew, he served as General Counsel for the AHS from 2000 to 2005. He and his wife, Diana, ultimately founded the Cobb County Daylily Society, and he has served two terms as President, while Diana has served two terms as Secretary and is currently the President. Diana and Bill have been married forty-eight years and they have one daughter, Kelley, and one granddaughter, Lily Rae. Bill retired from his law practice in 2007 to grow daylilies full time. He currently has 71 daylily introductions. In addition to daylilies and his family, Bill enjoys photography, greenhouse gardening, and Georgia Tech sports. He is a member of the Marietta First United Methodist Church and has taught Sunday School for many years.
