That garden path is fabulously green and lush, even if the Hosta is displaying a certain level of peculiarity. I don't think I could ever have too many of those beauties.

Best of health and continued recovery. It'd be such joy to fully engage in the garden again.

Thanks for the update. The garden will wait for you, though it may offer a little punishment for its perceived neglect. Gardens can always be updated - eyes can be a little trickier.


Good to hear the surgery went well - recovery sounds like a pain. My husband is scheduled to have both eyes done later in the summer and he is not patient with meticulous routines. Fun to come!

I have a couple older variety hosts who do that tuft of leaves by the (lavender) flower. Maybe some kind of reversion in your case?

CHAVLI — Eyes are doing well and I am doing some weeding and deadheading.

BARBARA — Eyes are doing well. Can't wait until mid-July when I can get a new prescription and have reading glasses that really let me read, compared to "readers" from the drugstore.

That last shot, absolute gorgeous! Here's hoping the days speed by and your return to normal is easy.

DANGER — ​Thanks, I was rather taken with it myself. It's nice to have plants that don't require always being on your knees to see them or attend to them.​


Yes, your garden looks great. :) I think you got more rain than we did in May (still, not enough when we usually get 4" in May and 5" in June). And now this dry spell with hot weather this week...argh. I'm glad your cataract surgery went well. Here's to continued speedy recovery.

Linda Brazill

BETH — It's amazing how many rainstorms are forecast and just keep passing us by.


Glad you are almost past the restrictions and can get gardening again. It has been very dry here too, basicaly less than half an inch for all of May and June. The soil is so dry. How strange that your epimediums are turning crispy as ours usually do well for a month or two without extra water. I wonder if it has to do with the extremes in temperature or if they just aren't as used to dry soil as ours are?


Oh, I do hope your eyes are healing up - my Dad is having cataract surgery on Thursday. Your garden is looking beautiful!

Linda Brazill

JERRY — I find it odd that the Epimediums are unhappy as they have been in the garden for years. The ones that seem most bothered by the current weather line the driveway. So it may be the mix of reflected heat and light plus dryness.


I’m glad your surgery went well. Mine was 2 weeks ago and it was wonderful to get all restrictions lifted after only 1 week. My doctor said the incisions are now so small that things heal very fast. Modern medicine at its best.
