Garden tour, computer update
This is probably my favorite hosta for leaf color. Its flower is nothing special but the leaves are neat from the time it pops out of the ground.
I never remember what this one is going to look like. It is a hosta although it looks a little like a Romaine lettuce heart right now.
The red penstemon contrasts nicely with the green lily leaves. The penstemon will reseed in a couple new places each year.
This is the cranesbill in my front flower bed. The flowers are a pale purple. The plant is bigger this year so I guess it liked all of the snow cover we had last winter.
I added a few more pieces while I was waiting for my printer software to load in my old (slow) laptop. I feel a little geeky....I installed the wireless printer that is on my network.......and it worked, I printed a picture from the computer in the basement on the main level printer when I was done.
My desktop computer stopped working 2 days ago. It turned itself off while I was outside digging plants. I am hoping it is just the power supply unit that is bad. I picked one up and my son will install it when he has time. I am sure glad I bought the new laptop last week and transferred most of my files. If the desktop is dead, I'm still OK. My son knows how to get any remaining files off the hard drive.
