Spouses of Hosta lovers or Hosta Lover's Lovers
From time to time I see posts mentioning spouses. And I have met couples who are both enthralled with hostas, and garden and shop for hostas together. Then there seems to be those whose spouses could care less and don't want anything to do with gardening, or maybe garden, but don't want anything to do with the hostas. My DH has been really darn patient about the whole thing. (Being married to me, he has to always be darn patient. :) ) But he has also been such a good sport and such a help with the harder things, such as digging in the bricks, or going with me to lug home heavy rocks, etc. But he was such a dear this week while I was gone, and I came home to a lovely surprise of him having dug in 37 of the 42 new stepping stones! (I will try to get a photo of this later and add it.) But I just thought it would be a fun topic to discuss. Are your spouses a part of your hosta gardening? Do they not like it? Tolerate it? I am just curious because, as with my girlfriends here, for the most part our DH's just seem to stand back and wait for us to need them for the hard labor.
