Hi, here har the H's (from) here!

One of my husbands pix of our hemerocaulis, recently started collecting a whole bunch of different ones, and sadly dont know now what they all are... not good. Please forgive me.

Holodiscus discolor. I keep posting this in the soup every year in the hopes some of our zone 4 and up will try to grow it in the garden. It is beautiful in June and July. Birds love the seeds, a native from BC and a lovely shrub to grow.

and I just wanted to show how rich Hostas can be as fall color.

Peace,

Kat

Here are two Hs: not new plants for the list, but pretty pictures. First is a hosta, of course. Second is a hydrangea leaf, but the real star is the little frog.

I am a new poster, but have been browsing your lovely pictures. Very encouraging while there is still two feet of snow on the garden! I am anxiously awaiting "L" and seeing everyone's lilies.

I love how this matches the flowers of the Lady's Mantle.

Hi Gwen! Thanks for contributing to the soup. If you wish, you can go back and contribute to any of the other letters that have been posted. Love your little frog!

Kat, that's the one called "Ocean Spray" isn't it? It is beautiful. Hostas have great fall colour don't they? Very pretty hemerocallis. I'm planning to add to my Hemerocallis too.

CC - I love hosta's. Your second one is Albo Marginata I believe. It's quite a common one. I have it in my garden as well.

These are pics of the first year that hosta lane was planted up. The kids call it chipmunk lane though. It is an arc, and planted on a hill. There are about 70 different cultivars in here, although the pics dont seem to show it. I'll take pics this year, because it is now spectacular.

Koot...sent your grote site on to D3, she is thinking of Spring Break project for 2, 14 year olds. You think???

As long as they gets them out of the can on time I think the kids would have a great time.
