an unusual word, for me!

An everyday word around Minnesota! It conjures up all sorts of Scandinavian situations :O)

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Roger... an expression, at the least. Fulfillment of whatever emotional response at best! ;-)

nonizamboni - and Minnesotans would also be very knowledgeable about the zamboni! :-)

I love hostas and mine are sending up flower spikes. I'm sure my hummers can't wait for some variety in their diet with my feeders! I separate the big ones and transplant in hopes of enjoying more of them in my yard. Your slide show is terrific!

Gigi Ann said...

I have one variegated hosta in my flower garden. It looks so lovely there among the other greenery.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Lisa, I'll be separating mine this year! Won't that be great?? I'm glad you enjoyed the slide show - did you add the music?

Hi Gigi Ann, Variegated hosta add another dimension, don't they? :-) Thanks for your visit!

jo said...

That's much better.

The other one was doing my head in :-)

What an incredible collection of hostas. No idea you werseso brilliant at these plants.

Who is on mollusc watch???
What I wouldn't give to have just one single plant with such unscathed verbiage.

Wow you've got different kinds, nice.

"U" are invited to see the "U" at my page. Have a great evening.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Jo, Glad you could enjoy the slideshow. Everything is growing so quickly again this year, that I think that's why nothing is being nibbled, yet.

I have a new "Guard Snail" you'll meet before long, however. ha.

chubskulit, Thanks. :-)

Rose said...

Clever choice for U! I enjoyed the tour around your garden, Shady; you have a beautiful collection of one of my favorite plants.

hocam said...

Just looked the word up. It's a great word. The hostas are beautiful. I enjoyed the slideshow.

Some really nice specimens! I just have a couple of really common ones that I grew from seeds that I saved or were given to me and I should add some new ones for diversity.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Rose, It's hard to resist planting hosta when you have shade! :-)

Hello, hocam. Thank you for visiting and leaving your comment.

MBTh, You may be right. If you have room, some new hosta might add interest. :-)
