Thanks, Mr. LM. :P I thought my little 1.3 megapixel Canon had given up the ghost earlier this year, but it's working fine now. I was going into panic~mode when I couldn't get it to turn on though... :roll: :x

Are you sure you will recognize your garden this year, with all the new walls you put in?
Love the plant combinations, and I agree with Leafy that your experience in the floral arranging business certainly shows in your garden.

Thanks, Linda!! :P I think looking at the placement of hostas in gardens like yours & Mr. LM's & lots of others here on Hallson's had just as much to do with my newer hosta arrangements. But I'm sure there's 25 years of floral design experience somewhere out there too. :wink: I am just trying to make each hosta stand out on its own as much as possible by both contrasting & complimenting with the hostas around it, repeating color combinations, contrasting with color, size, & texture.

As far as the new & extended walled gardens go - they need a lot more soil added before hostas can get planted in them. Wish I could morph my van into a pickup & go make a couple runs for some Oma-Gro compost... :wink:
