My Aunt Barb brought me an old 1950 type bicycle serveral years ago.  I finally got at it, and got it planted just a couple weekends ago after finding back baskets at a garage sale last summer.  Then found an old freezer basket that was my grandma's for a front basket.  I'm lovin' those orange impatiens.  It's just for fun!!

AHS National Hosta Convention Artistic Design Award

 Russ O'Harra Hosta Society sponsors the Artistic Design Award @ the AHS national convention annually.  In the past we have given a beautiful lead-cut glass vase.  It was time for a change.  Potter Bob Andersen of Sunflower Pottery, Pella, IA designed and created a "Hosta" vase for us.
