    My fellow Stewbies, I made a video this morning while sitting having my morning coffee with the girls. Please come and see it..It's the first time I talked on one of these. It was suggested before that I do that. One day I will make a nice one describing the plants I pass, after I get better at this.

    We have not mulched yet so the gardens are not so pretty.

    Great job Barb!! What a beautiful spot! I love the mossy steps and would have to put a deep red geranium on each side (you all know I'm crazy about my red geraniums :D ) I am jealous of all your hostas :D I am trying really hard to create a shade bed just for that reason!!

    Where exactly would you place those red geraniums?

    Thanks everyone. I had a great little time making my little movie.

    great job, Barb...and it sounds just like you talking. Just what else did I expect, huh? I love your mossy steps, too.

    I'd put the geraniums on the top steps, one on each side :-D

    Great video Barb. I agree with Strats about the geraniums. Is there enough sun on those steps though?

    Great paths, hostas, beautiful garden. Lots to look at & enjoy. Thank you.

    We went a shopping yesterday, for a bit. This is what my car looked like when we got home.

    Hosts? Yes we love them.

    [​IMG]

    We bought 56 unnamed Hosts last night for the hidden garden. Just where we had out twist-a-bout there are over 60. I guess I will know exactly how many we have when my map is completed.

    I could pot up some of these for the mossy steps. Wonder how long the will take to grow. Hubby said it's sunny enough..

    Yes and just look at the leaf. It's Emerald Lace Leaf.

    And just look at this new one. It's a super mini, the guy said. It only gets 1 (that's one) foot foot tall.

    I liked your video Barb ... it's so nice to see other members gardens! Just wondering what kind of car you drive that will hold 56 Hosta's 2 Japanese Maples, and 30 Geraniums?? :D
