Here is the last part. The last two gardens are the Big Pond. and the June Garden. I love the way Big Pond got connected to the rest of the gardens and patio. This is all a work in progress. I helped her place the plants but adjustments will need to be made. There is more room between her plants than I usually make (due to my limited space and greed to buy every hosta in the world). It will also be interesting to see how some of these do with what amounts to lots of sun.

This is what I'm calling the Intersection - where the Patio Border Garden, the Bridge, The Willow and Big Pond all Join.

RE: Almosthooked 3

LOL spend too much on plants to drive anything newer. Thank you Myrle for posting these and for all the help. I guess it is starting to look great when you put it the way you did. Just think .. I was trying to get out of work but now never want to leave my yard.

RE: Almosthooked 3

Everything you have done is just wonderful! I love all of the natural elements you have used together with the man-made objects. It has made the garden very interesting, you never know what to expect.

And you couldn't have had a better mentor. Every time Myrle posts pictures of her gardens, we all drool! :)

Steve you are as BAD as Myrle. I have toured some of the gallery and I got a great expectation on my trip to The Greenery on their 2 for 1 sale( 10 with that recent purchase)Yesterday I found a Titanic and a Butter Crunch but can't find much information on that one . Sounds like BC is going to be pale green and so far Titanic is a really dark green and very pretty if it stays this way. Myrle said they have one called Frozen Margarita that I just have to have. She is so bad too. I may have to just go look ....40% off so it is a must! lol

RE: Almosthooked 3

Steve, you're right there's certainly no 'almost' about it! She's beyond hope. This is a new experience for me, mutual encouragement for our addiction. My sister and I have shared the love of hostas for over ten years but we only really visit each other's garden a couple times a year. My other friends really like the garden but in a general way. They don't want to know the name and detail of each plant. This is a fun thing! I'd also like to say it's a two way street. Faye and her hubby are so generous with help when needed and Faye has made some wonderful wooden creations and given me some. I'll post some pictures soon but today the garden awaits.

I really like the combo of the Great Expectations and grass. That grass is really borderline here and though I try to grow it, it usually looks like a pathetic weed.
