Hosta Party

Hosta Party

If you were looking for me on Saturday afternoon, I was in Byhalia, Mississippi having fun at the annual Mid-South Hosta Society party.

The Mid-South Hosta Society is a non-profit, educational organization formed exclusively to promote knowledge and interest in hostas, to foster development of new and improved varieties, and to encourage cultivation and usefulness of America’s number one perennial in the landscape.

Almost thirty members of the Mid-South Hosta Society escaped the summer heat at the beautiful Gilcrease Gardens for the annual picnic. It was a beautiful day to roam through the hostas along shady trails, eat yummy refreshments (the barbeque was awesome), and visit with fellow hostaholics.

Unfortunately, we arrived back home to a warm home—the air conditioner quit working while we were gone and the inside reached a high of eighty-four degrees. Luckily, Dad found someone who could repair the air conditioner right away and within three hours of returning home, we were back to a normal and comfortable seventy-two degrees. It’s a good thing, because I had the Marriott on speed dial.

Have a wonderful summer!
