I have a few hostas but the ones I treasure most came from two shoots from my mothers garden that came from my grandfather's garden. There's one plain green and one green and white. Now my children all have shoots from those plants in their gardens. My grand father would really be surprised. Or maybe that's why they've always done so well.
I to love best the plants I got from my late Mothers garden. every year I say hi Mom when they peek out or when they bloom.This year her floribundas pink climbing rose really took off and we will pick it bare and send them off with her ashes as my family is descending to spread her ashes on the ocean from whence we all came..
What a lovely way to say goodbye to your mother, Dianne.
I was amused with this arrangement. It's a bit military!
Then, here is one of our Peony shrubs ready to burst out.
This specimen is from the copper beech. When the nuts are riper, the squirrels will get to work feasting on the nuts and filling our garden with litter. Sigh. Later in the year we will be busy collecting the husks which are hard and spikey.

Wonderful display of all your planters, Richard. They all look very well conformed to their assigned positions!
The squirrels I hear have just sent out an alert warning to begin their journey to your house for copper beech delights! Watch out!
