What else can I do?

Postby viktoria » Mar 15, 2010 11:44 am

Flood, mud and melting snow season does not yield photo material. A tour of last season's garden is in order.

The first three photos are of the area created to showcase species hostas only. This was revamped last year and should look much better this year when the hostas that were moved have adjusted to their new locations.

Very pretty! You've got the right idea, nothing is photogenic right now so I guess I'll keep looking at last years photos! :D

Most of the snow is now gone so...what to my wondering eyes doth appear? Mud, glorious mud! Last year still looks a lot better.

I had to come back to this thread for inspiration!

Happy to inspire! Waiting for Dell tech to come (tomorrow) so I can fully utilize new computer (PIA!)...not you, thy...and do it again. In the meantime, here is a pic of a 'Sagae' sport I saw in 2000...don't know what happened to it. It is not 'Liberty'.

The computer tech was here for 12 hours! Before that I had already spent 11 hours on the phone with Dell techs. (Daughter and son-in-law had also tried to solve the problems.) Most problems are solved but there are still some glitches.

Yes, the sport of 'Sagae' looks like 'Liberty' but it is not. I was it and photographed it a few years before'Liberty' hit the market. The grass is a Miscanthus but I recall not which one. If I lived further south I would choose 'Graziella', which is larger.
