Plant Sharing

Sumter, SC(Zone 8a)

I was really happy when two of my neighbors noticed the greenhouse get moved into it's new spot a few weeks ago..

They both needed some beds split and said if I split them for them I could take whatever I wanted...so now I have new Hostas, Bearded Iris's and a plethora of Canna's

Especially thrilled about the Canna's as when I lived in Newberry, Tropicana noticed during a visit that some of the one's I bought from the Horn co-op had mosaic virus - so I ripped out 5 beds of them - that was tough to do but I knew the right thing so they didn't affect other plants like EE....anyways...I love how gardening can bring neighbors together..

Awesome! I just got a slew of blue leafed hostas from a friend's daughters gardens. ;)

all this rain has really helped them settle in...

It has really helped a lot of plants make it through this winter.
I'm planning on planting a few of the hostas in one of my gardens. The rest will go to friends.

I wish more of my neighbors gardened so we could exchange things. The neighbor immediately left of me does a decent amount, but my yard really sticks out on my street because no one else seems to care about gardening or landscaping in the neighborhood :(

I love Hostas, but all mine get burned so badly since my yard gets so much sun. I wish there was something else that looked like hostas I could grow. I love how they come back bigger and more beautiful every year - at least until the sun finally gets them.

reading your post John it reminded me of when the HOA was giving you flack about your yard a couple years ago - it's hard being the prettiest home on the street huh :)

It's not easy being green (thumbed) :)

The lady who was in charge of the HOA has left, and the new guy is pretty slack when it comes to enforcing the rules. Still, every year I worry I'll get another letter. But so far, no further "complaints" from them.

I guess I should probably take all those pink flamingos down though. j/k

Hey! I have pink flamingos! One big Momma and 4 babies. So, if you do need to get rid of some...send 'em up here!

Love them! An homage to John Waters? Hope your neighbors are as fabulous as his characters:-)

Don't I wish! Pink Flamingo is one of my fav movies!!!
Actually, my husband used to give me a hibiscus and a flamingo every time he screwed up badly. After four of them, he needed to move up to jewelery...;)
The big one is a Christmas gift from him years ago.

I still miss Devine and Edie the egg lady. His early movies were so deliciously decadent, and they're still shocking. I used to have a cat named Francine Fishpaw:-) Pink Flamingos forever, and long live John Waters - the pride of Baltimore!

I often say that I'm the egg lady without the crib (or girdle) since I love eggs!
