My DH picked up Mini Skirt for me today and the owner of the company gave me Heuchera 'Frost' from the Little Cutie series. What a nice surprise!
It could be because I paid for Ruffed Up but it won't be ready until the end of May - maybe it is for interest earned on my money :)

I've seen some great pics of Mini Skirt. Fun little hosta. Lucky you to have a DH who buys you hosta!

Yes, Jan, I am! This time of year is the best for hosta folk.

Mini Skirt and Ruffed Up are in my top five right now. We must really have similar tastes. Mini Skirt is the first mini I've really been taken by. Not true, actually I think Cameo and Pandora's Box are enchanting. But that frothy, frilly look plus the thicker leaves that give it some backbone...I just love the look of it.

This little guy was my mouse purchase last year.

Both of those are really cute. Mini Skirt is awesome!

I have one mouse hosta, and it is doing fine. Survived the winter undamaged by the squirrels. And I think I took a picture of it today. May I share?

Snow Mouse. It's the prettiest one in the bowl.
It also has excellent substance. The other two are Oze (which lost its variegation) and Marquis

Share, please! The more hosta photos, the better.

I put my first few 'Mice' in the following container, I think in 2011 but I lost Mighty Mouse that winter. It must have been to cold in there without insulation.

I had to replace Mighty Mouse and then I built the rock wall and a little bed at the end for the 'Mice'. I have put mini conifers in there, too.

I pushed around the dirt a wee bit yesterday with my fingers, and I think they all have survived :)

What a sweet grouping! I love your "guard snail." Does he intimidate the slugs? :)

RE: Mini Skirt

OMG, are those mini conifers REAL? They look too tiny to be real! You must really enjoy the scenery you create in miniature. I would not have the patience.

Love that rock wall/bed.

Mocc, you have got to check out some of the micro, mini, teensy, tiny conifers out there! My favorite nursery has a fairy garden section that just to die for! When my kids earn rewards or chore money, they usually ask for new additions to the fairy garden instead of toys or treats. :) win-win!!

RE: Mini Skirt

I had to switch to miniatures due to lack of space, but I still buy larger hostas and put them in pots!

The conifers are real. Some of them stay small and some of them are really, really slow growing so they are considered miniatures. I purchased three more conifers at the garden show two weekends ago to add to my mini bed.
