Daylilies in the article are:
Highland Dancer by Kincaid, 2008
Lonesome Jaguar by Derrow, 2010

There are no facilities to wash the dirt off the plants so your preparation of the plant is important.

We also picked out 20 additional daylilies for the sale table. The sale table plants will be a set price. People will be selected to make choices from the table in a similar manner to the way we choose names for the door prizes. Each daylily will be labeled and have a picture so people will know what the flower looks like and all the information about the plant.

Also, the new babysitter plants will be distributed. Everyone receiving a new babysitter plant will have to sign a contract with HADS that indicates the daylily belongs to HADS and that the person is growing it for eventual return to the Members’ Sale.

If you have other perennials that you would like to share, bring them in – we’ll set up a table for other plants people wish to share.

The Members’ Sale is always fun and exciting – so bring your checkbook and any HADS Bux you wish to redeem!

The daylilies included in the auction are:
BIG HEARTED JIM
BINDERS OF WOMEN
CARNELIAN CHAMELEON
CELESTIAL NAVIGATION
CHILI SPICE
CHINESE CHANCE

Winter Doldrums

Melera, whose talk is entitled, “The Victorians: How They Forever Changed the Garden.” A gardening expert for 13 years, Barbara was President and CEO of The D. Landreth Seed Company, the oldest seedhouse in America established in 1784. She has a lot to offer and it should be an interesting and beautiful presentation. More information will be in the February newsletter – so stay tuned….

Topics for Discussion at
the January Meeting

We have contracted for a bus to the Regional Meeting on Long Island July 19th and 20th – there will be sign up sheets at the meetings. We are considering a refundable charge for members of $25 – this will ensure people don’t sign up and then not show up for the bus on the morning we leave. Guests are also welcome although they will be charged $50 (for $5 they can join the club and ride for free).

To encourage new members, we are looking at giving out a voucher for a free daylily. New members can redeem the voucher at the Members’ Sale in May from the Connoisseurs Table or at the Annual Sale at Faddegon’s in August.

Gift Exchange:
Members who would like to be involved in a Holiday Gift Exchange should wrap a gift with an average price of $15.00 in value and bring it to the party. Please do not place any nametags on your gift. Only those who bring a gift to exchange are eligible to participate. We will use the same exchange rules as the last couple of years with each gift only being permitted to be swapped once; however, due to more people attending, you will have to be prepared to make your swap within one minute after your number is pulled or you will be asked to just take a new unopened gift from those remaining!

Please plan to Bring your Beautiful Photos
to our Holiday Party!

Since members had so much fun at our previous photo contests, we thought we would repeat it again at this year’s Holiday Gathering. The BIG Difference though this year is we are following the criteria the American Hosta Society has set for their contest this year so you can enter our local contest and use the same Hosta photos for the National Competition if you are a member. We are also asking HADS Members to be involved and submit their favorite Daylily photos. Therefore, please sort through all those beautiful photos you have taken! Photos must be printed in 5” x 7” size for our contest with no frames
or mats.

We still feel that the most reasonable place to obtain the enlargements is at Wal-Mart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, etc. but if you know of a better source…please let us know! When you arrive at the meeting, each member who will be entering photos will select their own mat color and mount their photos. A black or white mat will be supplied. Please place your name on the back side of each photo. Each member may submit up to two (2) photos per category.
