I love hostas, and after our recent purchases, we now have eight. Eight is a lucky number in Chinese culture btw if you were unaware. Don’t have all the names, is a shame … but they are so beautiful. My iPhone pics y’all!

Our first hosta, MANY years ago

… my newly planted grass asshole!! It’s mean and evil, wicked and nasty … Oh, and I know who you are, and that’s two days in a row, lucky-for-your-two-saving-steps-lazy-ass… I ain’t around that time of day … but I swear, I catch ya in the act … I’m puttin’ yer nuts in my vice … if ya have a set I mean!!
… and ’cause of this, I’ve got a broken back (ok, so NOT broken … but danisembellishmentpermitted VERY VERY SORE!! … goes nicely with my green thumb, don’t ya think?), at least a hundred 10 gallon buckets worth filled with dirt and then carried 20 metres to my mound broken back is what I’m talkin’ ’bout. Pity me, please! 😥
One of the many healthy herbal tea products from Traditional Medicinals … it caught my eye while tea shopping for Tiff as I was familiar with it having previously bought dandelion root tablets. Its health benefits are incredible, and I’m happy having incorporated it into my nightly routine. It has a pleasant taste … you can actually taste the roasted flavour.
… and it’s ORGANIC to boot …
… steeped, ready to enjoy in my fave Denby mug …
Story starts a couple months back when Hydro arrived unannounced and butchered the HUGE shrub at the front of our property. Said they needed it cleared to allow access to their box … funny thing for years they never seemed to care/bother ’bout the box or the bush. Removing it created (… and left) such a mess … really was an eyesore (not to mention carelessly snipping my cable/internet line in the process – don’t ask, don’t get me started) with the ground all chewed up and seeing the exposed rusted out original box … it was a blot at the end of my driveway. A bit of complaining from the complainers was all it took. They replaced the box, laid new sod, and planted three beautiful shrubs … really did a great job fixing it up too. Imagine my surprise coming home yesterday and seeing this … couldn’t believe it. Hydro must really want them to survive the winter … I’m guessing they’re hedging their bets (y’all caught that right, lol?) avoiding getting an earful if they don’t!! 😆
my new shrub protectors
spiked and anchored to the ground – ooooh, nice mani-dani

Was purchased a few years ago (09/10 – perhaps?), and showcased in the President’s Choice Insider’s Report … unfortunately no sign of the plant tag or receipt, but believe me, Tiffany K will def know the name once/if she sees/hears it … she captured this beautiful pic (isn’t it gorgeous?) July/August … Hosta and blooming Daylily together off the walkway to our house!!
