AHS National Convention

The American Hosta Society's National Convention will be next week in Bloomington, Minnesota. If you love hostas, and have never been to a national convention, I strongly encourage you to attend. I attended the national convention a few years ago in Indianapolis, Indiana. What can you expect at the convention? Well for one there are lots of great hosta gardens to explore. This is a great opportunity to see all kinds of hostas to add to you want list. You will rub elbows with lots of great hosta people, and, of course, there are lots of hosta vendors to visit.

When: June 23-26
Where: Bloomington, MN
More Details?: Convention Page
Pictures from the hosta convention in Indianapolis

My favorite picture from the convention, we laughed for hours, heck we laughed all summer about this picture. My friend, Andrea, whom we stayed with and the hosta "gnome" (or was it elf).

I go down in infamy...this is still hilarious!

Great looking hostas, but also pretty cool looking trees, especially in the third photo.

I love that tree too! I am sure it's one that would not grow in Wisconsin.

Andrea, I still laugh every time I see that picture.
