On Gardening: Dazzling daylilies showing out at a garden near you

Our American Hemerocallis Society Display Garden is in full bloom and while they all are extraordinarily beautiful there are those certain varieties that just keep me fixated.

The family house is in Coyoacan, where she grew up, a suburb just south of Mexico City. Today it is Museo Frida Kahlo for those intrepid enough to brave the trip to this lovely old town. And though wandering the house and Frida's studio is an exceptional experience, there are some great ideas outside in the garden.
