The hosta holiday season is upon us

Social distancing is the norm here in The Netherlands !
The latest edition of Het Hostablad,
The Dutch hosta magazine, is filled with hosta photos 
to get you through this Winter !
There are also a lot of hosta gift ideas on line if you are looking !
One weather forecaster is predicting a severe winter.
When? Hard to say :)

The 2021 weeding season at Het Gazebo winds down

with a warm bowl of soup and Dutch pancakes! 
It tasted great ! " lekker  ! "
The volunteers have really made a difference this year
with their weeekly visits to Het gazebo in Diepenheim!
The last weeds have been taken care of for this year !
We're looking forward to seeing you
 back here, next year, in February 2022 !

It was so foggy this November morning !

Cold and fog didn't keep the volunteers away !
There must have been a lot of cold fingers !
Het Gazebo is mostly weed free !
Autum colours, fog, hot chocolate !
Makes for a pretty good volunteering day indeed !

Autumn colours at Het Gazebo

A very blustery Autumnal day indeed at Het Gazebo !
There are still a few green plants to be found!
Thanks to the volunters for giving it a go
when the wind seems to blow things around !

After two rained out weeding Wednesdays at Het Gazebo

The volunteers were able to get together yesterday 
and enjoy a bit of the mid October sunshine !
If....In preparation for hibernation, bears may eat 
north of 40kg (90 lbs) of food per day
How much does a snail eat befor Winter ?
