    Being on a slope didnt help me here, but I needed to get rid of mud.
    this is what I did with Lava. I like the red stuff.

    More tidy than mud.

    Looking good, B. That red with the green grass looks nice. You have made it look very tidy indeed. The hostas are especially attractive.

    Thanks Sjoerd an Netty,

    A good lady friend gave me the curly Hostas, and I cherish that . She is gone for her heavenly rewards right now.
    Makes more memorial to me.

    I know what you mean, B. I especially cherish plants given to me by others too. It makes them and my garden extra special to me.

    They are so lovely to look at, your Hostas.

    What a lovely hosta..even more special having memories attached. Those are indeed my favorite plants. They also seem to be the plants that stay with me despite my neglect..doubly special.

    Those are lovely views. Know just what you mean about special plants... gives you a reason to think of that person and smile, every time you look at the plant....

    You've created some really lovely area :-D s in your garden - so much better than mud. Your plants all look so healthy and lush. The red sets them all off nicely.

    Gee girls, Thanks so much for that wonderful response.
    My son gave me the lil bush first one next to the hosta, the opposite end is Bleeding hearts from my late sis who died in 2009.
    I still have my family with me in plants.
    One sis gave me white Lilas she is gone.

    Another nephew gave me a small , very small christmas tree . Hd dad gave currant bushes an grapes.

    Many seedy folk contributed to my lovely flowers. I have a Happy Yard. Keeps me going all winter for the spring break.

    Walking thru my yard< makes alot of scents.. ;o)

    I just do things as they come to mind.
