It looks like all the hostas survived the cold night! Yay! I love hostas, the flowers are nice, but the foliage is spectacular, especially when you have a hosta collection. I admit it. I have a "collection" and I can't wait to go back to the hosta nursery not too far from my house.How cool is it to have a nursery, not too far from where I live (have I mentioned that I live pretty near the middle of nowhere?)! The place is called Shady Characters and they specialize in shade plants for this area--hostas, heucheras, tiarellas and other plants that do well in limited sun.I also had some time to kill this morning, since my son had his annual standardized testing for our homeschool association. So, I went to a Lowe's Garden Center and almost made it out without buying anything...until I saw the herbs. My herb garden is looking a bit neglected these days. The rosemary is taking over one corner and the oregano and chives are doing fine, as is the lavender, but it clearly needed some new plants. Here's what I bought:There's bee balm (two of them), lemon balm, pineapple sage, potpourri lavender, variegated thyme, Texas tarragon and stevia. I'm hoping to get them in the ground today.
