Ellen, Ellen, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?

I visited Dad yesterday, as I do twice a week. I brought a shovel and dug out some of his bulbs-- snowbells, which I haven't seen at the garden center, and old-fashioned orange daylilies. They have daylilies at the garden center (I bought a few pretty white ones), but they're all the much smaller, dainty hybrids in various colors. I wanted some of the huge weedy ones for my back yard, and Dad has vast amounts of them-- the way they spread, you won't be able to tell that I did any digging there by the end of the summer.

It's going to be about seventy and sunny today, so I'm going to dedicate the day to planting bulbs:-).
