Yay!! I just added this date to my calendar =) I was so sad to miss last year's swap. Stupid allergies.

I love woodland, shade, and alpine plants. And named hostas, of course! Will have to see if any of mine look like good candidates for dividing.

Oh Susie, I'm so glad ya'll had such a great time. One of these days I'm going to sneak up there and surprise you, and I would love for you and anybody else to do the same and attend our VA Round-Up. Look at all the plants and what great photos of everyone having a grand old time! Lorraine looks a lot like you -- ya'll have good genes -- and I'm glad to see Pat who shared many of her Dahlia tubers with me, thanks to you for putting us in touch. I looked for Birdie. Next time you talk to her, tell her I miss her.
