Decorations are making their appearance and children are excited. Beyond the glittery wrapped gifts that will soon await many sleepless young ones, it is that time of year when people gather to celebrate the holidays and the coming of a new year. It is a season of reflection, and one of gratitude for everything and everyone in our lives. We stop making excuses and visit with those we love. A time when we set aside differences and wish happiness for everyone. And, it all starts with a meal. Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to share memories, laughs and good food. So, in the spirit of enjoying the holidays, we thought we would share a few details on daylilies with names fitting for a feast.
