|How about sharing some long shot pictures of your gardens? This pic isn't really a "long shot" cause it is part of my minij-bed, but it does show multiple plantings of hosta.|

|Here's one a couple years old of the hosta bed near the house.|

|Thanks Susan. And I just picked up 6 more at Big Lots a couple weeks ago. I just have to replace a section of fence that I want to put them on so I hid those from myself in the enclosed patio on my garage.|

|I thought it was a collection but I see it's an addiction|
Jul 27, 2011 12:31 PM CST

Yes, I am an addict.

|Ah, beautiful gardens CJ. I will post some "long shots" tomorrow...but they won't look nothin like yours|

|Okay, a few photos:|
By the way CJ, the mini hosta garden you have is awesome!

|Maridell - I like the flowers up against the white wall - really shows off the colors. You have a couple of nice garden companions nipping the catnip too.|
Jul 28, 2011 3:28 PM CST
|Maridell you have lots of curb appeal as well. The container on the front porch is a real knock out!|

|CJ I had to put a tomato cage around the catnip...the girls wanted to lay on top of it |
Thanks Susan, Sometimes petunias get to looking kind of ratty late July, and I'm happy with how they are doing.

|Very pretty gardens! The weeds are taking over in my gardens. It's too hot to care Even my pretty hibiscus blooms are wilting before I get home to enjoy them!|

|I love,love all the pictures.I will post some pictures,soon. I have to figure out how to do it. The gardens here are weedy too,but it is too hot for us to be out there long.We didn't get enough rain today to soak the tubs & pots,so it took me an hour to do those. I was dripping.|

|I live in Texas, but I'm from South Bend. Does that count? |
Every now and then I have a quiet chat with the skeletons in my closet...just so they don't come looking for me on their own.

|I forced myself to go out last weekend and pull weeds. My husband said he would help me put down new mulch afterwards...well, the mulch is gonna wait till the temps are more tolerable.|
Looking forward to seeing some photos from you Doris.

|Gee Debra, if you were gonna go someplace else why did you not pick someplace with cooler weather |
You have some nice landscaping!
