Also, close to my home town of Colfax, IA, there is a Maid-Rite shop in Newton which is about 10 miles away. A college friend of mine owns it which gives me a good excuse to visit that one also.
I would like to share the following picture with you taken two years ago.
Guess where? Yep, Taylor's Maid-Rite shop in Marshalltown. Lee, Don Lovell and Selwyn Rash, all enjoying a Maid-Rite lunch break at Pollen Dabbers. Can't you see the smile on our faces?
This picture shows the inside of the Newton, IA Maid-Rite shop. You can see they are not fancy. I have made many visits here beginning way back when I was a kid my parents made their weekly visit to this shop.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Maid-Rite sandwich, I am showing the following picture. Maid-Rites are simply loose hamburger that is steam cooked, not fried. WOW! I heard that a member of our club, Libby Bell, drove an hour out of her way after attending the national in Minnesota just to find a Maid-Rite shop. She ordered one and liked it so well, she ordered a second. Good going, Libby.
Now to the daylily seedlings. I am going to show a few of my favorites.
Seedling 4007 (Red Saphire X Fringy)
Seedling 4020 (Marilyn Morss Johnson X Seedling)
The flower is stunning with both color and form
Seedling 4020 (Angels Gather Around X Fringy)
David Kirchhoff was here when this bloomed. I asked him if it was a double and he said no, it is a sculpted daylily because all of the ruffling is coming from the mid-ribs. Folks, this may fit the AHS definition of sculpted flower, but not mine. To me, a sculpted flower has grooves. How we ever got this form as sculpted, I sure don[t know.
Seedling 4063 (Cimarron Rose X Barbara Mandrell)
Seedling 1004 (Doug's Caress X Camelot Red)
This is one of my particular favorites and has been used extensively in my red hybridizing program.
I hope you enjoy looking at these seedlings. Remember, a left click over the image will give you a larger picture.
Life is very, very good.
