"Hostas require long days for shoot and root development. The later in the year the hostas are planted, the less root development will occur.Plant hostas in June and July when using bareroot divisions: "

"I haven't been able to add to my hosta collection this year. But I keep dreaming of getting more mini's for my fairy garden. That is why I haven't been posting this year."

Arden commented on Janet Mills's group Hostas
"No, "Viulcan" it will be "of a size" when fully grown. It tolerates more sun than most Hostas and the green, white and yellow in the leaves is what prompted me to buy it. I also purchased new this year "Praying Hands"…"

This is my first attempt at a compost tumbler.

The post are made of 2 - 2X6 pieces of wood,

making it a 4X6 posts (each side)

The post are not treated or painted yet, but it is functional

Each post is cemented into the ground.

***

Every thing used to make this Compost Tumbler

was recycled, or what was at hand!

***

Good things do not have to cost a lot...

Peace

Thanks Janet, and yes I do believe gardeners are some of the nicest people . I think you and your husband would just love our neck of the woods. We live in Branch Co.in southern Michigan on a chain of seven lakes. A lot of other lakes in the area also. Any of them allow canoeing ! You would love the area. And as you know you can garden just about anywhere. Are you looking for a place to relocate ? you said you are moving to Mi. Didn't know if you had a destination in mind.(and no I am not a realtor) ha ha . But I know quite a few. Where ever you decide to go I wish you the best ! Keep in touch , my canoe is always available !

Just love looking at your photo's, Can't wit to have such mature gardens. Great job and thanks for the friendship. I'm fairly new to this site but am really enjoying it.

I looked again couldn't find anything to match your discription. I called the natural history survey in Springfield once and their butterfly expert happed to be in the office when I called. They were very helpfull. Their number is 217-333-6880.

Good morning, I just was looking at white butterflies at Daves Garden and ran across a large blue butterfly. It was called the "Common Wander" They have a fairly large data base for ID.TTUL

I guess I'm very fortunate! The nearest composte faccility to me is in Monmouth, Il.. They charge me $5 to load my truck with either mulch or composte. They fill the truck up to the top of the cab with mulch & a little over the top of the box with composte. I use @ 14 loads of mulch and 2 or 3 loads of composte a yr.. I would never beable to take care of my yard by myself if it wasn't for that facility and the reasonable price. I found my butterflies of Il. book, it was right where I left it.I couldn't find one in there that matched your discription but I looked in the audubon butterfly guide, found a giant white that met the size but didn't have the blue marking you discribed. ttul

Janet this is my thing,. I'm the cheif cook and bottle washer around here. What you see is all my fault. I'm retired and single. I have my daughter living with me and she will mow part of the lawn for me, and occasionally help with fall clean-up. But if I don't keep after it looks pretty messy. My back area gets pretty overgrown by Oct. and the killing frosts don't 'tll N0v.
