I have a real fondness for blue and yellow. It probably goes back to my days as a Cub Scout. I had the shirt, the cap, and the yellow neckerchief with a brass slider. At the end of the year we had the Blue and Gold Banquet where we got the badges that we had earned. It was a tremendously big deal. I try to remember how it was then when I’m dealing with my grand kids now.
The day lily is one that I believe was bred locally.
