Amador flower farm

 The reason I went to the Shenandoah Valley was to visit the Amador Flower Farm and Nursery. Discovered them last week, while searching online for daylilies... and boy, did I find daylilies here.

They have hundreds, yes hundreds, of different varieties. Tall, short, red, yellow, peach, spider, huge, fragrant, tiny, nocturnal... any daylily that you might imagine, and then some more.

There is a beautiful garden, a picnic area, and a large koi pond with ginormous koi. A garden center... and a million daylilies. Did you know you could use daylilies for erosion control on a slope? There's a daylily for that...

And the temptation... rows and rows and rows of daylilies in pots, ready to be taken home and planted in your garden. I did that. Took them home. Lots of them.

I'll name them on here as I plant them out!
