That is a big White Feather!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

This hosta seedling has been coming up for the last 5+ years, never gets any bigger than these 2 leaves and always stays this color!

Not getting more is a promise none of us keep. We just tell ourselves that to keep it a bit under control.

Midnight Oil and What's That

I've been eyeing What's That for a couple years. Carole Brashear posted a picture of her Midnight Oil. It's almost black!

I just ordered blue mouse ears, I think they have better chance of growing now then ordering them later. I have a tiny area that I need something. This is free shipping, so it's not as bad.

If the first picture didn't convince you that you need Fickle Blue Genes, this one will!
