The Blue Mayhem Project #AC

In the 1970's the cry was
"Save the Earth", "Save the Whales", and "Save the Eagles"!
In the new Millennium the cry is
"Save the Pollinators ... to save the Earth"!

Gnomes & Hosta

Another Attempt at Hosta Humor
Re-posted on October 12. 2014

2014 October (First Edition)

Over the last few editions I have taken an unusual path of storytelling, to poetry, to garden aesthetics.  This edition I want to take gardening to still another extreme.  The worst case scenario extreme!  In this extreme you the reader need to be a participate, give feed back, become part of this discussion to make this an effective edition.

2014 September - something extra!

Most of the time I do not post images because I know there is a very small population of computer users who have very old machines and cannot open image media of ANY kind.  Below is a special treat for the rest of my visitors!

2014 September (Second Edition)

Just to warn you - this is a LONG edition with moderate, technical reading.
Last edition I left you at a 'cliffhanger' by telling you that eight (8) new hosta that had arrived; and yet not telling you which ones.  In this edition I discuss Hosta Aesthetics as I look at everything I have.

2014 August (second edtion)

 Last issue I told the first half of the Atlantis story, that I know, to explain more graphically why Hosta 'Atlantis' ought to be in a theme garden of Chaos and Destruction.  In this edition I present children's poetry!

June 2014 (Second Edition)


What  I thought was going to be a long edition;
has become even longer!
 

It would seem that horticultural programs teach their
first year students the adage: 'Rest, Renew, and Regrow'.

May 2014 (Second Edition)

Sometimes even the best gardeners are fooled …
and this time I was had by a weed!
For a few days the Hosta count was reversed to:
0 up with 21 to go …

Round the Neighborhood - Season 2: Act 1

The goal for this creative writing is to provide a complete scene in 200 words or less; hence the brevity of each act.  The task is not an easy writing challenge since many times I start with over 400 words and need to selectively whittle my writing down to my own limit of 200 words.

Last years acts were embedded directly into each months blog edition; this year I have separated them to show the clear delineation between reality and fantasy.
