I was finally able to get Colin's boss' garden done yesterday. As he and I were both running late yesterday, I didn't acutally get started planting until a little after noon. Finished about 5pm, That was a lot of kneeling on concrete, even with a kneeling pad! He had approched me Wedensday night about some hostas he had pulled out, that his grandfather had put in, wondering if they could be saved. They could! He had pulled out 4 or 5 really large clumps, I was able to divided them out to about 20 smaller clumps, and use them as part of the new landscaping. Both of us were glad for the same reason, he was able to have something of his granddad's around for posterity, and I love to have been able to give him a keepsake, I of course was half way through when I remembered I didn't bring my camera. I will swing by and take some pictures today. Donny seemed happy with the end result, he can't wait for it to start to fill out now. Along with the hostas, I used Beebalm, daylillies,mums, and pinks.
The neatest thing for me was, it was the first time I used landscape paper. Never used it before, but it biodegrades, it's easy to work with, and afterwards we used cocoa bean hulls as mulch. It look lovely.
Now it is time for me to get my own gardens planted. I have NOTHING done yet, either because of the weather or because I had to much running around to do. I will be putting in the container garden for the Greek store on Monday or Tuesday, Pictures will be posted soon, I hope!

I adore hostas, both because I like the way they seem to anchor a garden and because most are so prolific. I divide mine annually and spread them around my own beds or share with family and friends.
