The Connecticut Daylily Society will continue its 2014-2015 program series on Saturday, November 1 in Avon with a much-anticipated presentation by Michael Bouman of Daylily Lay in St. Peters, Missouri. Mr. Bouman is president of the American Hemerocallis Society Region 11 which includes Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. He is an author and AHS garden judge, instructor of new garden judges, and talented garden photographer and popular speaker. Mr. Bouman will present his program at 1:30 pm at the Avon Senior Center in Avon, CT.
Mr. Bouman’s garden, dubbed Daylily Lay with a whimsical nod to Bob Dylan, is a lakeside oasis complete with ducks, geese and heron where he grows over 1,000 hardy hybrid daylilies, and Bouman created this extraordinary garden in just four years! His garden is located in zone 5b so his daylilies are hardy throughout Connecticut. Mr. Bouman’s beautiful daylilies can be viewed on his website: http://www.daylilylay.com/index.htm
This event is free of charge and open to the public. A social hour will commence at noon, followed by a brief business meeting. Mr. Bouman’s program of slides and conversation will begin at 1:30.
The Avon Senior Center is located at the Sycamore Hills Recreation Center, 635 West Avon. Road (Rt. 167) at the junction of Sycamore and Scoville Roads.
Further information and detailed directions can be found on the Society’s website, www.ctdaylily.com/CDS.html.
