Lovely afternoon at In the Country Gardens

altheatime(5B)July 19, 2014

Was very happy to be able to attend the "Hosta and Dessert social" at In the Country Gardens and Gifts today. Such lovely display gardens and very friendly and knowledgeable folks. I enjoyed meeting Josh and his family, and picking up some beautiful new plants.

Beautiful picture! That sounds like a lot of fun! What plants did you get? Do you have any more pictures to share?

Thanks, Linda! It was a great afternoon!

I got:
Lakeside Prophecy Fulfilled
Lakeside hazy morn
Neptune
Liberty
Frank Lloyd Wright
Winter Frost

I still haven't figured out how to post more than one photo at a time, but here are some more photos. It really helped me make my selections after seeing them in the garden.

Thanks for the additional pictures! I agree, it is great to be able to see mature plants. It looks like they have some beautiful gardens there and you made some nice purchases! I have Neptune and Liberty which are some of my favorites.

Happy planting!
Linda

Glad you enjoy Neptune and Liberty- they were certainly breathtaking in the garden. Do you have pictures of yours?

Well, as a follow up to the lovely event at In the Country Garden and Gifts, I entered a photo in the Hosta Social Photo Contest on Facebook and won a gift certificate!!! Now, how do I decide what to get from all the amazing choices- every time I check my list gets longer -

It looks almost finished- very, very nice.

I see from the website that there are still things that are needed.

I plan to "pay it forward" - lovely people and a great project.

Thanks so much, BungalowMonkey!

(If you mean the one on the left, it's Lakeside Hazy Morn.)

Sorry I didn't count right- I was referring to #5 LOL.
I don't rember what that one is, sorry!

Hi Althea,

Beautiful purchases. Photos 4 and 5 both show cream edged blues on the left. Are these both Lakeside Hazy Morn? My first thought was that photo 4 shows Regal Splendor. Maybe they are a lot alike.

We don't get the Lakeside hostas, so I'm not familiar with them.

Thanks so much, Steve, I'm very happy to have them!

I guess I can't count - I was referring to photo #5 (my purchases) being Lakeside Hazy Morn. I don't remember what the one in #4 is, but know for sure I saw Regal Splendor in the display garden. Thanks for catching it!

I saw Lakeside Hazy Morn in some else's cart and had to stop and ask what it was :-)
