The previous pic is from the Dave and Rosemary Parks Garden, one of the many fine optional tour gardens from this years AHS National Convetion in Marborough, Mass. The folks are admiring some Mr. Parks' incredible creations. He is an acomplished hosta hybridizer and this garden is overlooking Plymouth Bay.

He also does his own topiary and has many in view of the Atlantic Ocean. This was just one of around 20 fabulous hosta gardens on the tours for 2011. It was one not to miss.

THe 2012 AHS National Convention will be in Nashville, Tn...see ya-all there!
