In your June 8 article, "Legislation in the Wings," [by Rep. Amos Amerson] you alerted readers to many significant pieces of legislation that were not passed in the recent legislative session. I appreciated your publicity of these issues, and on a similar note, I would like to remind readers not to overlook the larger national pieces of legislation that have equal impact on our own backyards.
The Land and Water Conservation Fund is a great example of one of the important issues we are missing out on.

Every year about this time I receive calls related to how to grow daylilies.
Daylilies can be grown successfully in all areas of Georgia. They are frequently seen growing under adverse conditions. However, this does not mean that they thrive on neglect. Those who specialize in growing daylilies are aware that nice foliage, quality flower, and repeat blooming are dependent on proper culture.
