Holy Hostas!

It all started with asking my mom to bring a couple hostas from her yard when she came to visit.  Instead of a dozen, I think I got 100!

I am plugging them in along paths and down at the farmhouse and will be taking some to the boathouse. My gnome seems pretty happy to have his own hosta!

What I haven't been able to get to this week I put in pots to plant in the near future.

Spirea is blooming.

Tomatoes are coming in strong.  Started with 30, down to 25 between wind storms and rabbits.

Next big project, getting the house painted.  I have talked to our painter, Shaggy, who was scheduled for May, now it's June.  I hope this doesn't turn out the same way it did with the plumbing.  I may just have to hire Ivan Yoder, the local Amish painter who gets the job done, but at twice the cost.  I have my color chosen, same as what I used on the farmhouse doors and windows, a deep chocolate.  It will be a big difference and I think I will love it!

Scored some 1960s mushrooms at the hospice store!

Rose Campions I got out of the gravel parking lot of the post office are doing fantastic!  I love free plants!

Willow was my big rescue project this weekend.  A Georgia rescue asked if I could last minute set up a volunteer transport from Memphis, TN, to GA and I have such a great team of drivers, we got her out and to GA late Sunday night!  She is a happy girl and the rescue let me name her!
