today, while out with my crews, planting dormant leafless hosta (a difficult sale to the client) we saw the most amazing sight.
i heard them first, little cooing sounds like pigeons. i told carlos, my leadman to look up. there were about 50 sandhill cranes circling above us, catching thermals about 1:30 pm, here in cobb county. we watched them till they reached their altitude, and broke for south.
within minuets, another wave of perhaps 40, flying higher in 2 huge v's headed south.
this continued for 4 waves of these incredible critters, a total of over 200 sandhills. what a magnificent sight.
hostas- my big time suppliers here dont want to sell them to me in fall or winter, because they look "bad."
i've just spent hours educating my clients about hostas, and now i cant buy unusual varities for them to enjoy next year, and forever.
What's the deal, guys?? one local wholesales carries a piddlin few varieties, but i'm installing 50-75 hostas, and i want some variety!!!
there, thats the hosta part of the sandhill crane message.
ho ho ho
