Re[4]: hosta-open DIGEST V1 #722

Beth, you are always welcome. I would contribute more but just love to hear
what is going on.

     Update on my yard:

     just had ole GW Bush and Stevie Forbes campaigning through the
     backyard here in mighty Delaware this week: both promised that if
     elected President they would name  Hosta as the National plant of the
     U.S.of A.

     That beautiful reverse sport of Antioch: after you sent me that photo
     you took of it last spring, it up and croaked. I suspected it wouldn't
     make it - now that you have that photo, can we clone the photo?

     Hope you can come back and it will reappear to delight both of us.

     Have more snow today - but should be ok for Japanese maples and new
     shrubs I planted. See you in the Spring.

Bruce,  How are you!!!  Good to hear from you and glad to know you are
with us.  You are usually very quiet.  Thanks for your input.  I'm in
process of planning my trip to your beautiful state this spring.
Maybe we
can stop and say hello.  I'll call if time permits.  Would love to see
mother's plants again and your special sport.

Actually saw
