Natural Selection Daylilies

Where the extrodinary is common

Home and Garden

This page features different shots around the yard and will give you an idea of what else goes on here. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

While Daylilies are a big part of my life...and much energy is spent on them....they are not my only love. I planted my first tree when I was 6 years old...a colorado blue spruce that I paid $1 for....and it still thrives on my property today...and is nearly 50 feet tall...I live in the house that my parents owned when I was was built in 1834.
