    Default 2 garden pics

    This is one of my favorite Hostas. Prior to getting into orchids I was into Hostas and had 200 varieties. It was a terrible thing to have a Hosta obsession...so glad I am no longer obsessed I put a quarter in the picture for size perspective.



    Here is one of my garden sculptures. This one is named Felix.

    The sculpture weights 6.5 pounds, less than my cat. He will be 3 at the end of the month.

    Cute pooch, rather have the hosta, it doesn't need taking for walks in the rain!Don't you have slugs? Those leaves look perfect! I have quite a big collection of hostas, but I haven't tried minatures yet, don't get me started, I have an addictive personality! Judi

    Felix is a cutie, he looks like a min-pin, Jack Russel Cross. Am I close???
    Your hosta is a beauty too, I Love the BIG blue ones. I don't think that I can grow them down here.

    That sculpture ... so life like LOL.

    I love that hosta! I've been trying to find some mini's like that for up at my folks' place. Happen to know the name of that one, Ron? Is it a slow medium or fast grower?
