    Default A garden trip

    While upstate visiting the parental units, decided to visit a garden in a nearby town. The couple sells a large variety of hosta and the grounds (which is also their home) is beautifully landscaped. Figured I'd take the opportunity to "bore the pants off" all of you. If nothing else, might help the insomnics among you to doze off.




    Commonly known as "forget-me-not"

    What a lovely garden! The entire thing looks tranquil and inviting. My favorite picture was of the Buddha Bust with a bird bath in front of it...just amazing!

    Thank you for sharing! It's so beautuful and refreshing.
    My favorite picture is herons in ferns, so plain and amazing at the same time.
    Hostas are quite lovely and various, was just thinking to arrange something like that. Great idea!
    I'd like to be 'bored' more
