Scott Elliott – Vice President of the American Daylily Society


Welcome to this episode of the Humble Hemeroholic podcast as I continue to chat with members of the American Daylily Society while attending the Region 10 Midwinter Symposium in Bowling Green, Kentucky.  In this episode, I was able to steal a few moments of Scott Elliott’s time. Scott is the current American Daylily Society’s Vice President, Judges Education Chair, and Region 5 director. We discussed his many roles in the ADS, his passion for daylilies, and his love of exhibitions.  It was an honor to sit down with someone who dedicates so much of his time to the society and his passion and commitment to daylilies shines throughout our conversation. I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation as much as I enjoyed having it!

Jim Cruise – ADS Chair of Video and Photographic Awards


Jim Cruise, the American Daylily Society’s Photographic and Videographic Awards Chair is my guest this week. He is a very humble man. We started getting to know a bit about him, his passion for double daylilies and exhibitions, and then he shared some of the roles that he holds at the national level (ADS). I was honored that he “agreed” (he was forced!) to sit down and have a conversation with me.

Nikki Schmith – Past President – American Daylily Society


In this episode, I sat down with Nikki Schmith, most recent past American Daylily Society’s President, and current ADS CFO.  We started learning a little bit about Nikki outside of ADS and transitioned into her passion for conversational daylilies that create a tapestry in her garden.

Learn some insights into what caused Nikki to find her way to ADS, her love of exhibitions, why joining ADS is beneficial, and other fun tidbits along the way!  Also, a discussion about her legacy passion project will help you get your daylily podcasting fix!  I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation as much as I enjoyed having it!  The more you know, the more you’ll grow…and as always, be humble and kind!
