Oh Cool Donna! I can't wait to meet you too! I am going to be wearing a white tee shirt with a hand painted hosta on the left side - that should make me pretty easy to spot!

I joined at the convention last summer when i discovered the meetings in Morristown are actually closer to me than the Del Val Hosta Soc meetings in Wilmington DE :roll:

Voktoria - the meeting is at the Freslkjsfodijanfl Arboretum :wink: or you can look at the directions on the link....

Woo hoo! I love meeting Hallsons folks in person!

Thanks, Alexa. That reminds me why I do not attend. Travelling to NJ is not my idea of a good time.

Viktoria, with apologies to Newjerseyites

I won't be there :( :wink: Viktoria, I forget, what is it that bothers you travelling through/to New Jersey? Is it the turnpike ? If so, you can get there without getting on the turnpike, you know!

It's not the driving, Barbara, it is the air quality or rather lack thereof. I have always felt that if I do not hold my breath for an hour going through North Jersey, it will take two weeks out of my life expectancy, which at 108 is not all that great anyway.

Of course holding one's breath for an hour affects one's life expectancy, too.

Alexa, so sorry you couldn't make it to the hosta meeting. Bob Solberg had a great presentation. He and Nancy are terrific people.

I ended you buying a lot of plants, I think (according to the cashier's table) I spent the most money (groan!!).

You're not kidding Renaldo...its a wonderful thing!
The first thing I did when I got up in the morning was go and look at the flat of plants. What a joy having a bit of green around.

I picked up 'Baby Blue Eyes', 'Cookie Crumbs', 'Dragon Tails', 'Iris Frazier', 'Journey's End', 'Peacock Strut', 'Sharp Dressed Man', 'Spinach Souffle', and 'Sugar and Spice'. Sigh, I'm in love.

Donna :wink:

Excellent purchases Donna!

I am so sorry I missed it, but we have had to make a quick trip to Florida to see my ailing Uncle. I spent Saturday packing :(

Glad you had a good time and we should plan to get together even without a meeting scheduled. I will PM you my contact info when I get back from FL.

Thanks for posting and I am so jealous about your shopping spree!
