and do you notice how MY flower looks all thick and clunky next to his light and fragile looking flowers?  :( :(

it's like HIS are the aristocrats of the flower world and mine are the country cousins no one admits to...

They're 'common' daylilies. I grow em too (and sell em even if nobody's buying em), but I call em 'Old Fashioned' orange daylilies. (Bryan calls em 'gutter' daylilies  :laugh: )

They've yet to bloom here. And yours are a bit thicker (more textured) than mine.

well if they aren't moving you could have a 'half off midseason' sale...and still make a tidy profit (that is the benefit of having higher prices to start with)

there was a story in the paper the other day about a fan selling for $1200!!!

They're already at half price. The other giant daylilies are 7$ a pot while the 'old fashioned orange' are priced at 3$ a pot.

No matter. There's a reason they're not sold at plant stores ... the're pretty common.

Besides, they've yet to be in blossom.

no matter ... 

The chives are blooming though:

The first of the (formerly giant) copper/burgundy iris came out today. They're the same size as the large yellow or pale blue iris. Guess they really liked the partially shaded area behind the garage & grew so tall back there.

This one's growing in the middle of the pale blue iris flowerbed in the front yard.

Here's a new posting. They've been growing in the back yard for a number of years, right behind the house, but I've never been able to get a good picture of em.

These common Red Columbine are growing in the front yard, right next to the 'gay paree' peonies (that have yet to bloom).

The 3rd back yard Iris flower bed is mostly yellow as suspected. Last years (first full year back there) it only produced leaves - wasn't completely sure of their colour (somebody wanted yellow iris from us - for trading), but this year we KNOW. With a couple of exceptions, it's a yellow iris flower bed.
