Watch this box for latest news, and weather-related schedule changes in case of inclement weather the evening of the meeting.



Spring is finally arriving, although still a little reluctant. And we are sooo ready for it. It is time to start thinking about our garden waking up. The daylilys are now emerging to remind us that they will be showing off before long. Plan to join us for our April Daylily Club meeting to see some of the very pretty creations from just north of our area. The meeting date is April 08, 2014. The doors open at 6:45 for visiting, with the meeting starting at 7:15, at our normal meeting location, Powell Drive Community Center.


For our April meeting, Margo Reed, from Woodhinge Gardens, near Charlottesville VA, will join us to share her, and Jim Murphy's hybridizing programs they share at Woodhinge. Margo has focused on the open form and Unusual Form daylilys during her years of hybridizing, culminating in her being awarded the AHS Bertrand Farr Silver Medal in 2013 for her outstanding accomplishments in hybridizing. You don't want to miss this one
