Good morning from a cool Lansing. Currently 56 with a high today of only 60 with scattered showers. But it's looking good for the big 4th of July weekend! Mid to upper 70's!
Yesterday Craig finished with weeding the rock garden and made a batch of Freezer Slaw. It's a type of coleslaw, but with a vinegar/sugar base instead of a creamy base.
I finally cleaned the last bike wheel, they all look so shiny now. Sorted pots that people have been dropping off for next years plant sale, cleaned leaves and such from the mo-ho gutters, washed the mo-ho, and waxed the front and part of one side. Waxing the front a lot sure helps with removing the bug guts from trips.
And we almost bought an ice maker for the mo-ho. They had a portable one on sale at Target for $109.00 Way cheaper than the $169 we've seen it elsewhere. We had it in the cart and on our way to the cashier, when we turned around and put it back. Just didn't feel we could justify the cost for just a dozen trips or so a year. And we have an ice maker at home, so I just bag up some ahead of time to take with us.
But now on to the Hostas!
3 types of Hostas around a tree.
The leaves on this one curl and pucker.
These 2 have very light leaf color. Look real good in the shade!
Another dwarf Hosta, blue with a nearly white edge.
And a group of 'Blue Angel' Hostas. These are giant Hostas, getting nearly 4ft tall and 5ft wide.
I have some 40 to 50 Hostas. You can see the rest in my webshot album.
