    Up in Maine, I was lead to believe that they had two seasons, winter, and the Fourth of July.
    Here in the midwest, I got used to two seasons..winter, and summer.
    Well, surprise, this year spring and summer lasted about 11 hours....there's a pile of snow on the ground, and more's a fallin'.
    So much for Global WARMING!!!!! bounce7

    I just signed up for home milk delivery. :) Go figure a small dairy near Ebensburg Pa still does this. No more late trips to the C-store.

    I hope the weather keeps going bad I plan on getting some more work completed on my layout.

    Hi sumpter250 :wave:

    Talk about global warming- it's still raining here in Johannesburg and we are starting to enter into winter, when it's suppose to be our dry season!

    In Cape Town winter means their rainy season but the are going through a drought, the dams are also only about 40% full.

    Hostas are plants that grow low to the ground. My wife plants the things all over. They grow like weeds (probably are weeds). She told me that they are mostly leaves, with small flowers. Anyway, here is a link with more info.

    Now, on to more useful (to a model railroader) info. If you want to model hostas, you're best bet would be a brighter green(almost blue sometimes) ground foam than the rest of your scenery. If you are modeling them in a larger gauge, you would be able to see the leaves (about 1/4" in G scale) and you might want to try a heart shaped paper punch. Also, the wife says they like it better in the shade, so you would want to keep them in the shadier spots on your layout.
