OMG, Paula, what a wonderful looking plant, like a pinwheel.
Sun Power, I presume?

Yep, it's nice to keep having them, isn't it?
I got a nice check for the occasion, plus my allowance which keeps me in pots and mix, and new additions to the family.

As Sidney was saying guilt can kill old ladies, so I try not to feel guilty, even when I know I'm being outrageous. It's always nice to have an accommodating spouse.

We were going out to dinner, but here I sit with my leg up while he treats my puncture wound from the corner of a square flower pot. I did not feel it when it happened, but noticed my shoe filling with blood. Injuries to extremities are cause for alarm when a person is diabetic, eh. So for a few days I'm not gardening.

It's always nice to celebrate with kindred spirits who harbor a passion for hosta. Thank you for thinking of me, Paula. All I want today is an inch of rain, okay? No watering for me.

As Mehitabel the Cat always said, "Toujour gai, toujour gai, there's a lot of life in the old dame yet."

Moccassinlanding, you commented on a flower picture that I posted on one of your threads. Because of your comment, you inspired me to take some more photos. So this one is for you. Happy Birthday. Hope you mend quickly.

Hey, Newhostalady, you have a FIRST.....a triple post instead of a mere double.

I'm keeping that flower picture, it is a great shot of a gorgeous flower head. I'm already seeing how it could be framed with a few more similar shots, to display in our study. Inspiring!

Thanks, BK, I appreciate it.

I got my birthday wish for rain, although the lightning killed my computer for a brief time. No damage. I love a rainy night.

Shut the front door ?!?!?!?

It's my birthday today too !!! Mocc I had no idea we shared the same birthday . . . oh it makes it that much sweeter. I knew you were a Cancer, just never thought to ask which day. :p

I hope you have a WONDERFULLY hostalicious one. :)

I unfortunately had to work today, but once I get home I will be kicking up my feet as well.

I know your DH will take good care of you so I will worry less than I might if I knew he was still up in MA.

Best Wishes,
Ludi

EDIT: Forgot to mention I treated myself to another small order from Hallson . . . calling it my birthday present to myself. :p

May I add my birthday wishes along with everyone else's. I hope you have an especially great day today. Your injury is untimely, but the upside is that you get to enjoy with your eyes while the rest of your body reposes for a wee bit. Sit back, sip on a delicious cocktail, and let your someone special spoil you on this day. That is my wish for you.

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!!!!

Moc you gave me a grand old welcome when I landed here recently with your lovely compliments on my community garden. You can visit my little "park pod" any time you want.

"you have a FIRST.....a triple post instead of a mere double."

So I am the lucky triple poster! Well, somebody had to do it! LOL

I am very glad that you like the picture, moccasinlanding! I went back to the photo and cropped it. Thought you might like that better. If you do, I can remove the framing and add the name of the hosta Alex Summers. Just ask!

Ludi, I also wish you a very happy birthday!!!!

That is good too, NHL....don't need the name, I know Alex Summers. The tight cropped one would make a good place mat size, it is a horizontal photo now. I like both. That first one reminds me of some botanical of an artichoke with a stem, and I was thinking a series of the hosta scapes with your saturated nice black background is very dramatic. And artistic.

Gee, thanks, I really like the pictures, and the thought behind them.

Melati, if I get many more hosta, somebody shoot me! I'm trying to hang tight and keep it under 400....although my DH is now estimating it is close to that. However, that could not be true, now could it! Only pots count. NOT how many are in a pot. :)

Although there are still at least 4 of my auction hosta winnings arriving, with some terrestrial orchids I can put in the ground...oh joy!!!

DeNile is my middle name, you know. Overcrowded? Never happen here...... natural selection will take care of some of it.

Happy Birthday Moccasin and Ludi! Hope you both have great day!

Mocc- 400, 500 or 600..does it really matter? Do whatever makes you happy! As long as you have the space and the time to water them all, it's a harmless obsession right?

TropicLover, good advice. A friend sent a cookbook titled COOK WHAT YOU LOVE.....and now, permission to go into orbit with hosta.

Hmmm, what a way to celebrate.
For Ludi and myself, and the rest of the Hosta Forum participants, think on this song the next time you discover a hosta you want.....

Moccasin, FYI, hosta purchased at a charitable auction do not count. It's all about the cause.

Melati, Do I understand you correctly, we are all buying hosta in honor of Moccasin and Ludi's Birthdays? I am ordering 2 more Cathedral Windows, one in honor of each birhday.

Awwww, Mr. Gary, how very nice to have such lavender pearls for all the ladies.

Don't worry about it, WW, there is lots of time before dawn. I just was told hosta obtained thru charitable means do not count...Bev said it and she ought to know. So I can whip out the ole (short) Wish List and feel perfectly entitled--ENABLED is the word I need--to find the dream hosta....(if he had not approved of more hosta, wouldn't he have given me something besides MONEY....something such as an electric screw driver?) so he knows......he is ONE OF YOU -- AN ENABLER TOO. .... My my my-my-my MY, isn't this a happy birthday for sure.

G'night Ludi... hello to the AFTER MIDNIGHT crowd.... welcome through Stargate to another world in the Back40. I recommend that you open the below linked Clapton number in another window and then read the forum posts for a better sense of being CONNECTED to one another. Not just our eyes, but our ears are sharing. Our thoughts lifted beyond the garden fence to times this music brings to mind.

It is my way of saying thank you for sharing your warmth as well as your wisdom. I have a greeting card I never can bring myself to give away because of its message.

Never mistake information for true wisdom.
