Barbara, if you need more work, come for a visit. 

Ya, it is good to shake the soil off and see where the crown is so that it is 
not too deep when planting.  Ed El. says to give the roots a tap against 
something and that makes the hosta grow better, sadistic but works even when 
moving seedlings.

We tend to plant a little deeper here because with all the freezing and 
thawing plants seem to just heave right out of the ground.

We are having a very sunny day here, the dogs are basking in front of the 
doorway and I am going outside right now to see what can be done that is not 
tooooooo hard. 

Your smile closing always sends me into that keep smiling song, for sure 
thats what friends are for, always count on you........through sad 
times......through glad times .....thats what friend are for.........N.
