One man's trash...

is this woman's treasure! Years ago I worked with a woman that happened upon a "trash heap" on the side of the road while riding her bike...

A gentleman was diligently working at taking out a bunch of day lilies, but not just any day lilies, 
these flowers are triples! 

She asked if she could have some and took them home and enjoyed them for years. 
When it was time to split the clump she shared some with me!

to share them with you! 
Oh and, it's a good idea to have a basket on your bike!
Have a Happy Day :@)

  4. Don't you just love "shared" plants? We have many that we've received from others - and give back in return, as well. I love that.

    I really got tickled when I saw your blog - love those little pigs at the top, and the name is pure joy.

    Thanks for sharing, and also for stopping by my blog!

  10. You would be surprised how many people do this. Why not take advantage of something you can enjoy, even if someone else does not want it.

  12. Oh how I envy you. I simply could not get a handle on the aphids attacking my day lilies. But I enjoyed them so much while I was waging war against the pests!

  21. What a blessing-to capture throw-aways. I've seen places like Home Depot and others alike just throw out plants-but have never been able to grab up the remnants. They are beautiful.

  30. Those are beauties! I have some that I rescued from a yard where the house was going to be torn down to build an apartment. The guy was having a book sale, and I asked about the plants after he said the house was going to be torn down. I gave him a small amount of money for those and some very nice iris plants. I've gotten some passalong plants, too. That's always fun. Of course, I've given away lots of nice clumps of plants to neighbors and friends.
