Road Trip! We piled into the Jeep and made or way to Corryton, Tennessee for the Oakes Daylilies' daylily festival. Oakes Daylilies' show garden is nice but you had better plan on doing some other activities while in the area since it is rather small. Plants were available for purchase and there were enough varieties to be interesting. We order many daylilies from Oakes for around the garage so it was nice to see were they are grown.
Since we are not taking a vacation this year due to COVID, we thought we would schedule some updates to the homestead. Back in February of this year, we contacted The YardFathers from Leicester, NC and got on their schedule for some hardscape improvements. After some weather and material delays, equipment began arriving on May 18 and work began. The work had four parts: a patio, a firepit, steps, and grass pavers.
