Thank you so much for the completed address Peiter. I guess when I was doing the paste/copy I missed those last #s. I was in AWE over the pictures and wish I had had the pleasure of knowing this man. Wonderful hostas and I bet full of knowledge some of us could find useful
Thanks also to cowboy for the email stating the same

Papou had that wonderful web site of his wonderful gardens (plural) around his house which was at a lake. It seemed that every hosta was a big and perfect clump. R.I.P.
His family seemed to have discontinued his website, would have been nice to continue to have access to it. Bernd

Papou was a real gem!

I still have a Liberty which I planted in his memory!

I bookmarked that site, yes, these are his many gardens. My h.'Liberty' was planted the year he left. I think the 'Liberty' on top of the GW Hosta Forum is in his memory in part.

What an incredible wealth of information and an incredible legacy! Thank you Papou, for your bequeath, RIP, you have left behind something that has made a difference for others.

Is there any chance that his photobucket account will go inactive?
