I got my package !!!
But I don't know who it came from. Confused

Two that were on my Most Wanted List with amazing roots, and great packing.
Blue Hawaii - because we've been to Hawaii several times
Katie Q - because I love the heart shaped leaves and coloring

Thank You!
Now, tell me whooooooo??? Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Terri,

Thank you for my hostas. I received them yesterday, but did not have time until today to thank you.

I hope they arrived unharmed for you, Gerry. I had no idea what I was doing. Shrug!

I'll be a better and wiser hosta swapper next year. Thumbs up

But...Do Not Worry...
I Think I Covered Her Needs and Addiction Rolling on the floor laughing

ZZTOPSOIL,

I like your edit! Don't make me sound more obsessed than I am! 700 sounds a little more acceptable than 800!

Please...Let's Everybody Post a List of what Hostas You Received.
Inquiring Minds Want to Know.
At Least the Host Would Like to Know. Hilarious!

That Means You Gerry, Terri, and Rose as Soon as She Returns from Traveling.


Thank You!

This was my very first online swap and a great learning experience. Hurray! I'm ready for next year! Thumbs up I wonder if we could do it a bit earlier in the season next year. It was in the 90s the the entire time and really difficult to work outside.

Terri sent me Francee and NOID.

Terri did a great job of packaging these hostas.

SSGARDENER,

Please tell me that those aren't the only two to survive! I sent several, so I hope you just had time to take pics of these two...If not, I'm sorry and will have to change my method of packing my plants!

@rose1656, they all survived! Thank You! Hurray! I only posted the prettiest pictures. Big Grin

I just couldn't get good pictures of the others because of heavy rain, and then sun glare and muddy soil. We've had so much rain!

Phew!!! I was getting a little nervous when I only saw the two! We've had lots of rain, too, but I think it's finally slowing down here.

Rain is in the forecast for the next 5 days. Thumbs down

I should say that I'm grateful for all this free watering, but goodness, it's been wet!

In addition to the American Prayer and Church Mouse above, I also received Aristocrat, Journey's end, Grey Ghost, Lakeside Missy Little, Independence, and Wagon Wheels. An embarrassment of riches! Thank You!

Nice pictures and it is fun to know which hostas are zooming across the USA and sometimes Canada.

Outside with my coffee this morning.

Katie Q is with me and looking for her new home. .... Maybe this spot with August Moon, astilbes, and Jack in the Pulpits. There is an empty spot on the bottom left of picture.
