Winter won't be boring!

18 C today!
Autumn in a hosta garden!
As we enjoy a gorgeous Autumn day, 
there are a lot of things on the Winter " to do" list
 thanks to the November AHS eNewsletter !
The Hosta Registry Website(click here) update is completed! Wow! Go take a look! 
Go Hostas ! by Warren Pollock highlights the Big Leaf Contest.... Condition of the leaves is not important. They can have slug and hail damage and tears—and often do. Have to like that!
Something for Clint Eastwood fans...The Mule, a new movie coming to the big screen this winter! Why? Whats the connection? More info to follow in the next AHS eNewsletter!
And for a good read this Winter Jim Henry as written a book and it's out on Kindle !
Plus all the great photo's, inspiring articles and information in this months issue of the AHS eNewsletter, we will certainly enjoy being inside!
