My Husband the Flower Guy
Scott Bennett, my husband, is a daylily hybridizer of micro-celebrity status. His garden is in bloom, and I will post images of his amazing new hybrids and seedlings as he gives me pictures. A hybridizer makes new flowers by running around at 5:30 in the morning with a Q-tip. He beats the bees to the pollen and spreads it around to other plants with obsessive, systematic design. His program is nearly 20 years in the making, and our backyard looks spectacular for a few weeks out of the year. Photo Above: new seedling.
