A quick daylily post

This is Schnickel Fritz (spelling probably wrong - I've always had trouble with this one) and one of the doubles that is most reliable here. Just a quick post this morning since I have to be up and in town by 8. Yesterday we once again had no electricity. We joke about this part of Ohio as being 'third world', but the electric company is trying to prove it. Seems like once a week we lose power for a few hours. This time of year we don't panic like we do in the winter when the greenhouse has to be kept warm. It's more of an annoyance, but as much as I like camping out, getting a fire started to make breakfast is not something I like to do too often these days. Kind of gets the day off to a slow start when we need to make the most of the cool weather that doesn't last much past 10 AM.
We are almost finished spreading wood chips on the fairy ring garden out front. With this heat, it has been a 2 week project since we can't do too much each day. After 2 years of thinking about it, it is really nice to get it done. Besides that, the garden finally doesn't look so neglected.
Species daylilies tomorrow - if the electricity stays on.
