Our new place has a bit more shade, and some good east and north profiles to the house. The missus went to an auction at a garden center two years ago, on a day when I was at work. She came home with a whole skid of hostas - and not just all one variety - I think there were better than twenty different ones. I've also picked up a few special new ones just because.....
Well they are at about their peak right now - yes some improve with age, but other get ratty and raggedy, so I took my trusty little digital out and captured the nicest of them for my blog readers to enjoy.
|This is Sum and Substance and is absolutely huge - leaves are 6 inches across|
|My personal favourite and the colours are true.|
|Another huge blue one.|
I'm just waiting for the hosta breeders to introduce pink or purple into the leaves. It can only be a matter of time.
And that is all I have to say for today.
