Good Sunday morning everyone! :-)
Looks like I missed out on the hilarity of the hi!jack! I think all of that photosynthesis and chlorophyll has amped up our creativity!!! I can just imagine what an evening of libations with you would be like....should be put to the test sometime..hm? Or is the fantasy better than the reality? LOL

HERE'S your chance to join the brag rag...post PICS of your SMOOTHIES (even if they are immature but destined to wrinkle, crinkle, twist, turn, whatever...as long as they are smooth now)..thanks for the inspiration Paul!.. :-)

Jo

Here's a 'brighter' Marilyn Monroe with not enough shade...have greener pics, but this is interesting and 'smooth'

Obsession is a dark smoothie, and I think it is too often overlooked. It's taking a good bit of sun these days.

Teatime....how do you like this silken leaf?

Nightlife....hmmmm, I must really like the dark shiny smooth leaves because I have a LOT of them

and finally
Lederhosen...which begins powdery blue and turns into a shiny patent-leather dark green smoothie. Plus it's fragrant. Here are my two showing variations in the color and shine.

This is the photo of 'Grape Fizz' that was accepted into the hosta library. Can you believe that this is year two! It is a very late bloomer, and I will post a photo when it blooms in a couple of weeks.

My very own first and new "Guacamole Don" blooming away, lovely delicate scent ...so far, I get one bloom open at a time...hopefully next year it'll have more scrapes, more open blooms. I think I NEED to get more same . ...Don in Colorado has the right idea...more plants/more blooms/=more scent.

Forgot pic in original post, duh me!
