Way back when I used to show my daylily greenhouse program with slides, I took three pots of daylilies into the greenhouse from outside and showed a series of slides with evergreen, semi-evergreen and dormant plants in pots. My first slide showed evergreen with considerable foliage, the semi-evergreen with slightly less foliage, and the dormant was showing no foliage at all. If I remember correctly, I showed the growth with slides week by week. Within 8 weeks, the dormant had caught up in growth with the other two.
This is the right center bench, image taken from the front of the greenhouse. The plants show considerable growth in just 15 days. The dormants are quite evident.
This image is the right center bench taken from the rear of the greenhouse. Compare it to the image in the previous blog page.
On Saturday, January 7, Jean and I took a cruise up the Tennessee River to the Hiwassee River Conservancy area to view the Sand Hill Cranes which are in their migratory to winter nestings. I don't know what we expected, but we were a little disappointed because the boat had to stay in the river channel and we could not get very close to the birds. However, at times there were thousands in the skies. Here is an image showing them in the air.
