So I have to go to my favorite nursery today to take something to a friend of mine that works there...

I did not go intending to buy anything.

I was just going to walk over and look at the heucheras...

So why did I come home with Peach Melba, Cajun Fire, Sugar Plum, Solar Eclispe,a tiarella...Sugar and Spice and a NOID that was just too beautiful not to bring home.

Last week I could have just left...walked away...

But not since this forum started....

I'm already a hostaholic....I really didn't need another addiction....

Anyone else ever done this?

Celebrate that you have enough space to plant more, and more, and more. They are all so pretty, and always new selections to consider. Show us pictures!

I have no addictions. I have 33 years AA, 29 years no cigarettes (true) and I cannot pass up a hosta or heuchera. Or a Rex Begonia or a cactus or orchid. I have an Agave Welcome Center. Will not talk about the cannas or the daylilies.

'I did not go intending to buy anything' LOL who you fooling? Have I ever been enabled by the forums here? Daily. Paula

I'm addicted to these too! I just got Miracle, Georgia Peach, Sweet Tea, Autumn Leaves, Berry Smoothie and more! I also started collecting ice plants (Delosperma). I want all the colors of both.

Echinacea, we will need pix of Miracle as it changes. And exactly how large is your yard? Delosperma spread, don't they? I'm imagining your garage consumed under a kudzu-like blanket of delosperma. Hmmm.... and I'm assuming you also have an echinacea collection?...

I've long since said about gardening forums....

If we were alcoholics, we'd not go to a bar looking for the AA meeting!

Welcome to the bar!

One of my favorite funny quotes is:
