The field is in great shape and we've begun propagating lots of the more special varieties of daylilies.

 

Carson, Tim and Sam work on dividing, adding compost and rowing out the many very tall cultivars developed here at Olallie Daylily Gardens

We're well under way shipping and even the rain won't stop us! Ariel washes the daylilies individually to ensure each plant is clean and dirt free in preparation for packing

 

Scilla blooming in the foreground,  tufts of snow on a Quince bush look like some sort of exotic flower.

The field is finally free of snow once more. The cold snap damaged some daylily shoots but the majority are fine. And in fact even the damaged shoots will grow out and recover.

 

Here it is late March and the fields are amazingly clear of snow! The ground is still damp with a patch of ice and snow back in the shadows but spring is coming fast!
