I was supposed to list a home in Rancho Covdova this weekend. But the seller of that short sale isn't quite ready yet, and she canceled our appointment. That's too bad because in another month, we'll be moving into the slower season. People think that selling in summer is the best time to put your home on the market, but it's not. Still, if you have to do a short sale, what choice have you got? You call your Sacramento short sale agent, and you go on the market.
That cancellation did leave me free, though, to take a short trip with my husband to the Amador Flower Farm. It's about an hour out of Sacramento, down Highway 16 toward Jackson and then right on Shenandoah School Road. The day lilies are beautiful right now. This nursery boasts more than 800 varieties of flowers. Plus, it's smack dab in the middle of Amador wine country.
Here are some of my favorite day lilies:
GATO (in Spanish, Gato means cat)
BETTE DAVIS EYES LILY
CRIMSON SHEEN LILY
HALF MOON LILY
PIRATE'S PATCH LILY
SILENT SENTRY LILY
