Not About Hostas

We had a steady flow of hosta lovers coming strolling through our yard today.  It was fun talking hostas and Haiti.  I was able to share with neighbors and friends how much I enjoyed combining my hobby of growing hostas with my passion to make a difference in Haiti.  "It's not about the hostas," I said more than once. "It's about Haiti."

Tons of foot traffic mashed down my grass a bit today, and I have lots of empty holes where nice hostas once flourished.  Who cares?  What charges me up is that we raised awareness of the needs of Haiti a bit, and raised a boatload of money... enough to buy 730 banana plants to plant in yards and gardens of impoverished families on the island of La Gonave.

A good day's work.  I'll sleep like a baby tonight.

That is awesome. I wanted to take our daughter over to see your beautiful lawn but that just didn't happen. Congratulations on your success!
