Daylillies in December


These daylillies decided that late November was a good time to start growing. In that sense, they are carrying on the tradition my daughter started last year, choosing November for her lobbying campaign to get us to buy mail order ducklings.

The impulse for the daylillies to grow came from their position at the edge of a pile of fresh woodchips dumped there a month earlier. The heat of decomposition must have been enough to warm the soil. Hope they didn't blow all their root energy reserves on this false start.
