Here we are now at the fourth garden (of five) that we'll see today, Day One, on our tour. It is the garden of Eddie and Mary Gage. This is a sales garden, so the daylilies are laid out in a very orderly kind of way. The tags were very easy to see and you'll note that for yourself in some of the pictures that follow. You may also see a few daylilies that we've seen before...however, it is always good to see how a daylily does in different environments and for different growers.
Let's get moving!
Need to make a wish?
I know, I know the daylilies are calling, so we'll get started with those...but stand by, there are some cute 'other' things to see here, too:
LAVENDER CREAM CASCADES (see what I mean about the labels?):

Some clump shots...COURTING TROUBLE:
There's that whistle...time to board our bus for our last garden of the day. The Gages have provided bus plants (thank you!) and I get one called COLOR ME HAPPY...which seems a very appropriately named daylily for the occasion. One last look:
See you later in Garden Five of Day One of the 2008 AHS National Convention in Houston, Texas. Thanks to the Gages for a fun garden and glorious daylilies! If you missed any of the previous three gardens, you can find them here or under my label section.
