This lovely Daylily did not flower last year and I thought it had died - then a few days ago I saw it forming buds - long after the others started flowering. Just glad it has returned Smile
Thanx to all for your kind comments and votes on the birthday card yesterday Smile Much appreciated!! Our son has to fetch his end of the year school report card today and he knows anything less than 100 % will disappoint us deeply SmileWinkWink
