Folks that are interested in the events... go to
www.geocities.com/wnyhostasociety/ or www.wnyhostasociety.org Click on the
green button for Show items. I just loaded a bunch of this yesterday, so if
you find any glitches, please let me know.
We have a preparation meeting today to help folks that have never
entered/exhibited in a cut leaf competition, and instruction on the best way
to display BLOOMS since we are including Hosta Blooms under our Hort
division again this year. Demo on using Hosta leaves in arrangments and
ideas on how to create a diplay...I will try to update the website with
today's events in the not too distant future.
VERY EXCITING... I better get out there and look for some good leaves I

<< i'll be participating in the big all day hosta, daylily, iris blowout in
buffalo on july 1st, commemorating the pan american centennial exposition,
with many other vendors. >>
Buffalo is ready for you!
Harry Abel is referring the the Second Annual FLOURISHING FLORA
subtitled: Where East meets Western New York.
This is a full day of fun and frolic built around a Japanese theme. We
started out having a show for Japanese irises, an exotic species with large,
dinner-plate flowers, blue/green foliage and a bloom time around the Fourth
of July. Then we began adding other plants with a Japanese background (or
Eurasian).... and eventually a theme developed. Last year we decided to
it together into a bonafide event and move it from a little nursery to the
Japanese Garden at the Historical Museum in Buffalo. This was accomplished
by Carolyn Schaffner, who continues to be the creative force behind the gig.
Last year we invited Harry Abel to give a talk on Japanese Maples (after
enjoying his talk at Hosta College), he accepted and was so fabulous we
invited him for this year, last year!
So this is how the day will play out..... There will be a number of plant
displays - a judged Japanese Iris show (go to Ensata.com to see what these
look like - sit down first and have the smelling salts handy), a cut leaf
hosta show, a daylily exhibit, a bonsai exhibit, an Ikebana exhibit. We
have an origami master (and not just goofy swans and boats), a kite display
and several vendors. There will be a sushi bar.
Harry's talk will be on Hosta Bonsai and we are having TV coverage the way
did last year (hey Harry.... Sally will be there). At the end of the day we
will have an auction of donated items to offset the costs.
It's a great day.
And I have the privilege of having Harry as my guest at the Stately Guest
Manor... and the first thing we intend to do is head for Canada and the
Carolyn has pulled together an extraordinary and unique event here and it's
become one of the high points of the horticultural year here. We will post
pictures on the website when the dust settles.
