THIS is how I know Spring has really arrived in Colorado; it's a Tulip, and THAT means Hosta pips will be here any SECOND! Whooopie!!

On a related note.... March 14th was my 44th. birthday, and I have to admit, judging from these gifts, my wife DOES appreciate my efforts in the garden....I will have to upgrade her to 'Enabler' status after all....can't wait to start planting this good stuff. Happy birthday to me, indeed. :) AND she ordered me 4 Hosta from Hallson Gardens...Yay!

Thanks Ludi; Yup, I had to show my stuff to 'The Ones I Knew Would Care'

Nice plants, I hope you see 'em real soon. Those are great varieties, I wish MY local garden center had a selection like that!

Happy birthday, Don. Sorry I missed the exact day, but I see you snagged some nice presents. I note the dragonflies. And that is a very comely flower pot, colored like oil rubbed bronze with a textured finish. The plant selections seem to be perfect to set off the favored jewels of the garden, your hosta.

Belated Happy Birthday Don. Lucky lucky you. (And what a smart wife - choosing gifts that she will get to enjoy too.) I do hope the weather is conducive to using all those goodies SOON.

Belated happy birthday, Don! What an exciting day for you! Wish my husband were as smart as your wife! Just think of the fun that you will have. Enjoy.

Sorry, I missed your thread on Friday. Happy belated birthday, Don. We have 3 things in common. Birth date, hostaholism and families who're not urging rehab. Your wife did real good with those gifts. Glad to see mother nature sent you something too.
