    Delona's Smile makes me smile.

    Thanks for looking. The island is completed. No more room for new plants. So this is final photos except for some progress shots of the latest hostas next year.

    It’s gorgeous, Donna. So sorry about your sister! And yes, a beautiful remembrance.

    Your Empress Wu is amazing. I’ve actually been wondering/worrying about it because I remember there was a concern about a tree that needed to be removed. Glad to see it’s ok.

    The hostas on your island are pristine. And I am so envious of your astillbes. They just do not seem to do well here.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your twin sister Donnie. The dedication to your sister is a wonderful idea and your painted sign and stand are just a perfect touch. Your garden couldn't look more beautiful.

    Donna, every time you post a photo of your Amalia, it leaves my jaw hanging! All of your hosta look so fantastic, but THAT one always floors me. Well done! Looking forward to meeting you at one of our DelVal events next year. Sorry you had to miss the convention in Philly, and the circumstances surrounding it.
