Here come the Hostas!

In just a matter of days, my Hostas that I felt were lost last year have made a remarkable entrance into the garden......
 I finished 6' of's after cardboard, newspaper, borders, and grass clippings.  Still to come, peat moss and mulch.  Only about 8' left of small section and i'm officially done.....for the time being...I have an idea for the east side of the house!
 This is the first bloom of the spring on my "Peace and Love' rosebush....lovely pink and yellow blooms.
 This is the Astilbe I bought at a sweet little nursery in Erie, KS and planted it last died off and never grew.  Its really going strong now and I love it - so little flower legend states that if you give someone an Astilbe it shows dedication and patience.  How fitting, it seems that I picked this flower as a momento from one of my many trips to Labette Co, KS to solve the mystery of my ggg grandmother, Eliza Ann Clay Millet Nafus.

  1. I have the same thing coming up here. Quite a few different Hosta are growing and some haven't really started yet either.
