Time for a celebration!

The Dutch Hosta Society is 30 this year!
Load up the car! Let's go to Trompenburg (click here) !
  After 30 years it was time for something new!
 Together, Karin, the standing chairperson
and Arie van Vliet, the original founder
unveiled the Society's new name!
Hosta Vereniging de Lage Landen !
Hosta Society of the Low lands !
The leaf show and best hosta in pot were judged!
 We strolled through the gardens and the Hostalaan!
And had time to see the impressive collection of 
Hostas introduced by nurseries here in the Low Lands! 
 Jeroen Linneman of Hosta Valley (click here)
shared with us  a great presentation about his 
growing collection of original hostas! 
 Members, friends, new faces and familiar ones
all spent a gorgeous Summer's day at Trompenburg!
Time to head home!
