Re: Winter (Was: Re: Hosta People)

In a message dated 11/23/99 6:31:49 AM Central Standard Time, eoneill@ibm.net 

<< I was just about to ask the group what hosta-open people talk about during
 the long, dark days of winter. >>

The hostas in my front shade garden have been long gone and the area finally 
cleared of leaves.  My sun garden, behind my home, still has life.  I had a 
luncheon a week ago Monday, and for table center pieces, cut and arranged 
roses from my garden.  This is something I have never done before as I think 
my flowers look better in the garden than what I do to them in arrangements.  
But, I have roses blooming all around the garden, and thought I should use 
them before a good freeze hit.  Well, it's a week later, and the roses are 
still blooming their heads off.  To quote Vita Sackville-West, "we're drunk 
on roses."  And, it's not only roses still blooming.  This morning on my way 
out to work, I saw Bluets, Dalberg Daisies, Coreopsis, hardy Begonias, Gaura, 
and one other plant but I cannot recall its name.  It's Nov. 23rd!

So, we are still enjoying fall and would rather not think about the cold, 
gray days ahead.
