I knew I was officially middle-aged when I got not one, but two, hosta catalogs in the mail!

I have wanted to keep track of the varieties of perennials in our yard, but find that even the metal labels tend to wear away or get lost. My cousin Ann has made a computerized database of where everything is in her garden... maybe I can get Joel involved in gardening this way?!
Hey thanks to Teresa for the hosta gift certificate. It was for a place outside Atlanta called Pine Forest Gardens, where they have dozens (hundreds?) of varieties of these things. I only remember the name of 2 of these, on the left is Fried Green Tomatoes and the one nearest the camera is Crusader. These should do well in our shady yard, last time I checked they were still alive. And I'm finally getting over being sore from digging 4 holes in the ground. Thanks to Ingrid for posting the picture.

I'm not the only one who thinks about plants: Dad planted his new hostas...courtesy of Secret--*cough* Teresa *cough*--Santa.
Mom, there's an idea for your class-you already teach art and about maggots--maybe you can combine and save some time...

Check out this cool ad for Honda.. isn't that contraption cool?

Just when you thought you'd heard it all! The new wave in teaching at our elementary schools - maggot art!

Congratulations Liv! Good job

Well...I won my category (computer science) and got a math award from UW-Superior. I had a great time and am looking forward to being an alternate/observor at ISEF.
