YouTube Video - 2009 Region 2 Tour Photos

Each summer, hundreds of daylily fanatics and friends attend a business meeting and garden tour in Region 2 of the American Hemerocallis Society.  The meeting is rotated between the five states that make up our region and in 2009, the Chicagoland Daylily Society hosted the meeting and tours.  Among the tassling fields of corn and flowing crops, there were 8 gardens to enjoy, new people to connect with and thousands of daylilies to admire. 




My roots are in southern Illinois, and have always been enamoured with the fields of glory lining the highways and moving Illinois forward.  It was a treat to return to my home state for this tour.  At this festive Christmas time of year, when I reminisce on family and home - these pictures of lush, green foliage and bright flowers bring a smile to my face. Each day of Winter brings me one day closer to the next Spring.  I can't wait.

These are my favorite photos from this event.



Enjoy!
