Oh, you should have thought of this sooner! My plants are almost done blooming!

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh - Waves hand madly in the air!!!! I thought of one!

a seedling of mine that on a good day is pretty ugly - I keep it because it is so darn strange... I went to get a photo of it and saw this one - one side opened one day, and the other opened the next. So, one side is all gross and needs deadheaded, but the other side is fresh. BLECH! Color is not this vivid...

This one is what it looks like on a normal day.... When I see it, I always think somehow the scape was put in a light socket, giving the buds a shock treatment.

Well, too late. The few uglies I had bloomed long ago. Besides if I don't take pictures I can pretend I never have an ugly bloom Rolling on the floor laughing

I can't stop laughing! I've got some perfect daylilies that I think are terribly ugly! I've just never taken pictures of them. I'm so glad to see that there are some that look even worse than my really ugly ones!
