Happy Mother’s Day

As I am writing this post, the thunder is rumbling and I can hear the rain. Let it rain, I got some things planted yesterday, the one blue sky day of the recent Tennessee monsoon season. 🙂 Sigh! At least I don’t have to worry about watering and the few hours the sun was shining, the lawn was mowed. All is good.
We planted Sum and Substance. It can reach 3′ high and 5′ across. After all this rain, it will be well set and sparkling clean. Seersucker texture is a sign of a more mature plant. Interestingly, hostas grow in areas most gardeners consider difficult such as under walnut trees.

A happy has arrived. Now that is getting the weekend off to a good start.

    I used a miniature in a container at the base of an evergreen, Balisha. Although it was a pretty idea, it was too hot and I couldn’t keep it watered enough. I think It would have to be on timed irrigation to make it work. I’m moving it to the ground however. Hostas around the Mary stature sounds lovely and serene.

    What a lovely present from your son! The flower arrangement is wonderful and the note makes it even more special. Happy Mother’s Day

    We have a hosta like yours. It’s two years old and this year you can see that it is settled and ready to get big. I love those hostas. I have big ones and tiny ones. We are just planting a garden by our “Mary” statue…It will be shade plants and hostas will encircle it. Your bouquet is very pretty. Happy Mom’s Day.
