"I've spent the past few days going through your amazing gardens, but I notice that none of your shade gardens have astilbe (or did I just miss that in your photos). Any particular reason? I've also added some of the hostas (Blue Angel and Great Expectations, in particular) to my wish list for next year. Keep those photos coming!"

"Oh, Lark. nThis is true cottage gardening at its best. You must work like a dog to keep this garden looking so spectacular. Thank you for sharing it with us. I will keep coming back to it over and over again. I especially love the photo of your big bed-- can you post more? "

"Hi Renee and thank you for your kind comments. Yes I will post might get sick of seeing my name. This site will get me through a LONG Winter. I love looking at all the spaces on YS that are created by common everyday people. Sharing and learning is what gardening is all about. Hope to hear from you again. SMILES, Lark"
