A Hosta Walkabout

Postby B_BQ » Jun 04, 2012 6:11 pm

I knew I had quite a few Hosta in the garden but not this many! I walked around the other day and snapped these. I have others, but they are duplicates/divisions. Click an individual thumbnail to enlarge. (Fingers crossed that this works!)

All your Hostas are beautiful! So nice and full.

I noticed one Hosta picture contained some Ferns in there too. After seeing that picture, you have inspired me to get more Ferns.

I also love the look of Sweet Woodruff mixed in with the Hostas. My Hosta gardens have Sweet Woodruff too.

Well I certainly don't have you beat. Wish I had room for more. I always thought I had a large space. Compared to most of the city I do, but it's starting to feel small now that I don't have space for everything I'd like to put in it. A good friend (that I met here!!!) reminds me to be thankful for what I have....so true, but a girl can dream.

SOOO NICE!

I love Hostas, don't know anyone who doesn't come to think of it. The few varieties you have with deep bold white in them are stunning, definitely my favourites.

Thanks for the nice comments. Some of these came with the house, some I brought with me from our other house, and some I've added in the last couple of years. I don't have room for any more though! The ones with the most white on them are planted in the deepest shade and provide a little 'light' in an otherwise dark and gloomy place.
