Late-season Lilies

LiliesWe’re all tired of looking at the chicken houses this week. Fortunately, they were renditioned last night, and they should all be Good Chickens by now… in your local grocery or on the way. No more looking at broken breakers, no more piles of feed caused by a malfunctioning system, no more die-offs in power failures.

For a couple of weeks, at least.

Something a little more pleasant to look at showed up earlier in the week — some lilies decided to hold out for a month and gave us their own version of the Late Show. You know, that allium never did really bloom out — it’s making little seeds already. Maybe it was a short show and I missed it.

FAR Future is set for the next two Mondays — the upcoming episode ran huge, so I split it up. That gives me a little cushion, and I don’t intend to waste it.


  1. Good to hear that things are going well. Those lillies are putting on a nice show.

  2. Hey FAR,
    Those are nice day lilies, such a nice change from those nasty privet lilies that grow all over here (including our fence line). BTW, I answered your query about the "onion on my belt" quote on the previous post. I'm still snickering, hehe.

  3. Hey guys!

    They're nice, alright… that's the first bright yellow lilies I've seen here. Most of them are this burnt orange — nice too, but I like some variety.

    (off to see what IVG said…)


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
