Daylilies Galore!

Meet Dawn Whitley! We had such a great conversation with her about her "passion" in retirement, her daylilies! Dawn has embraced daylily gardening with a zest just as she did her career as an engineer at the Campbells Soup Company. If you are like me, (Cindy), gardening is a favorite hobby in retirement and it isn't always easy. There is so much to learn to be successful and produce beautiful flower beds. I hope you enjoy learning about her passion as much as I did.
