Long story not-so-short, I am so pleased that I wasn't too busy to answer the phone those two days or I would've missed many of these opportunities to know interesting people ... through daylilies.
Moral #1: Stop and smell the daylilies!
Oh! That may be my next blog ... fragrant daylilies. Fast forward. I don't know enough to justify an entire blog devoted to fragrant daylilies. So I'll add it here. Some are very fragrant. A customer recently bought out my entire stock of 'Magic Amethyst' because she once walked by a large bed of it and was so struck by its fragrance that she promised herself she'd build her own garden of just 'Magic Amethyst'. My regret is ... I don't have any to build MY own bed of it. Sigh. (I'll keep an eye out for it.)
Moral #2: Keep better inventory!
Rita Bee is simply in awe of what she sees when she stops long enough to smell the flowers and observe what lands on them.
