Hasn't been ANY traffic on this forum for awhile. I wondered where you all are and how many of us are here to begin with.

I'ts ok spring, maybe you can get some pointers. Do you have a lot of slugs? I hear jokes. "Enjoy Washington, ten million Slugs can't be wrong!'

I'm here, but I've been busy and it's been way to hot to be outside until today. I'm still trying to get beds weeded....

I'm still here. doing A LOT of watering to keep my hostas from wilting. Seems some have gotten smaller from last year.

I think we got about 1 inch of rain in June. and just experienced 2 week of upper 90's to mid 100's.

Been hot and dry here, too. I visit this forum, but haven't posted much this year. Been busy watering , floating in the pool or hiding out in the a/c! I still have a lot of hostas to plant, but it's been too hot for that.

I have a lot of Hostas still in pots and I moved them to full shade to keep them from frying. Sad

I took this picture at my Sister-in-laws Saturday. They took a large Poplar Tree down because it was sprouting all over the lawn and the new tree will take some time to grow so the Hosta are burned. I added several pictures to the data base. Look at my profile. I'm to lazy to load them, here. The best thing on the place was Wolverine.

Hers look a lot like mine. I am going to move them to the side of house till by new trees get bigger. They only get morning sun and I thought it would be ok, but they fried. Sad

We got 2.8 inches in the past 8 days and temperatures in the high 80's, but now got more hot air moving in with lots of humidity! Whistling
