I just wanted to let you guy's know that over at the Hosta Library there was a Photo Contest going on for Pic's of Hosta that are not already in the Library!
Well over the past month of so there were BUNCHES of Hosta listed by BUNCHES of people and they announced the winner's the other day and our VERY OWN MISS. JODY (with 8 new entry's) was in 7th place!!!! WOW
Now not only will Jody SOON have her picture's in the Library but she also WON 2 FANTASTIC Hosta!!!!
WAY TO GO JODY, I for one am very proud of you and can't wait to see your name under your hosta over at the Library!!!
Jody please tell everyone the name's of the 2 hosta that you picked out as your winner's!!!!
Gosh ya'll it was nothing ... really. But thank you very much.
It's not easy to find a hosta in the yard that isn't yet in the library, I'm just glad to be able to contribute to it.
There was another winner that wanted the 2 hosta I picked which were maid marian and little john. I told Bob to let her have them and just surprise me. So I'll have to wait a little bit before I know what I'll get.
I'm a gardener, not a photographer, LOL. So the pics aren't much to look at ...but at least they will let folks know what the hostas look like until somebody can send in descent pictures ;) I even offered to Bob to retake them untill he got a nice one if he wanted, LOL. He said no he'd use those, he's a real gem of a person.
Ummm, I'd have to look again but some were whiskey sour, heart broken, garden party, mardi gras and tidewater. Some of which I got at the convetion this year. If you look at the photo contest link and view the entries all new pics are listed with who submitted them. There were a lot of new pics added this summer! :)
Thanks again Sue and everyone
Oh... and don't forget that you can put your own pics right here in our very own hosta database :)
Way to go, girlfriend! I can attest to Jody's beautiful Hosta collection!! Most are growing in the shade protected by her Leyland Cypress trees or along the paths of her main garden. Her awesome Hosta collection co-habitates in her beautiful yard surrounded by her awesome Day Lilies and lovely water garden. No wonder they are so happy!
Why don't you ask her to post some of the pictures I took last month of her lovely gardens? (hint, hint)
P.S. I'll be in deep doodoo again!!!

Such a feeling of "home" in these pictures. A garden like a living room, all the different furnishings!... I think I like the daylily walkway best! You must be easy to be with, Jody, if your yard is any measure. And sure enough thanks to Shirley, for cherishing Jodie's love of her plot of land!
Thanks everyone! Thanks for posting the pics Shirley.
Ya'll wouldn't believe how much everything has grown in the last 5-6 weeks since Shirley was here. Really looks like a "jungle" around the pond. I'll try to get some updated pics, and some of the "hosta walk" along the cypress's. The hosta look a little sad now though, between the heat and the darn slugs!
