Oh me, we are all in real trouble. I just saw an ad for 60 Minutes this weekend. They are going to show a medical test that proves addictions. I wonder if we can manage a full fledge raid on CBS to stop this. We can not be discovered. If they can prove that we are addicted, they might try to stop us or worse yet: CURE US!!! Crying Imagine, a cure for daylily addiction. I know of nothing worse. Confused

We always say, "We can quit any time. We just are not ready to quit yet." Don't ask me if I really believe that! Big Grin

Who is addicted? I am NOT addicted. Just because I spend most of my time taking care of daylilies, looking at daylily photos, hunting new ones to buy and making seeds to sell so I can buy more daylilies does NOT, I repeat, does NOT mean I am addicted! Hilarious! Whistling Rolling on the floor laughing

Me addicted? Say it ain't so!!!!

Don't tell my boss, but I even have a couple of hybridizers websites loaded on to my work computer, so that if I am having a really bad day I can look at beautiful daylilies and relax.

And I don't consider THAT an addictive urge Big Grin

I remember when I only had 2 rows of daylilies. I think I started with 12. I was good for a couple of years, then I found the Lily Auction and found AHS and found all the wonderful people that grew daylilies to sell online. I was a goner and now I'm enjoying so many more than 12 somewhere around 300 named and 600 seedlings.

I also remember when I only had 2 rows of daylilies. Now there is no grass in my backyard and at last count I have 305. I'm not getting any younger and I know I should downsize but can't seem to be able to do that yet.

Thank you, brought the work camera home again, took a ladder across the street to take the photo. Sticking tongue out As soon as I saw the tree, I was sold. Reminded me of Indiana. Don't want to go back, and we have small trees all over da place. But this one just...well, if I could hug it, i would. Hilarious!

Cindy, I'd have it that way, too, in back except for the dogs. Which is part of why I'm digging up the front! Big Grin

5 years ago, I had.... wait for it, wait for it....

NONE!

Then I brought some home from our cottage that summer.

Then over the winter I found the garden forums and accidentally discovered the LA....

and last time I looked, I had too many (so I no longer look at the running total on my plant step program)

Nope, not admitting to any addiction - not me! ~Jan
