Today was the first collector's sale fundraiser for our iris and daylily gardening club. All of the flowers were neatly trimmed, labeled and packaged for display - ready to go to their new homes.
We actually sold out on a few types of daylilies - some lovely bold yellows and brilliant reds. The funds raised go to the club for hiring speakers during the cold winter months when the only thing to do about gardening is to talk about it.
Next weekend will be the final sale and I'm hoping that we'll make enough money to get some really good speakers.
If nothing else, though, I made sure to make a good donation to the club - a new white siberian iris!
It is for charity, after all...
