Hosta, Sweet Hosta....

The Hostas we planted several years ago by the backyard shed are in bloom right now.

The ones a little further over, in front of the tree house, have not started blooming yet.

I'm not sure if it has more to do with the fact that they are a different variety of Hosta, or whether it's because it's a tad shadier over by the tree house.

I never even think to sit over in this part of the yard when I go out in the evenings to unwind and enjoy the little critters and birds.

I really should because I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find the hummingbirds visiting these blooms on a regular basis.

We've had glorious weather today in New England. Our high humidity & high temps have broken.

A blissful day by anyone's standards!

Wishing you all have a lovely week!!

Your hostas look so beautiful. What is your trick to keep the slugs out? I have that trouble with mine every year.

My hostas seem to bloom at different times, too. Isn't it wonderful to have the humidity gone? As long as the rain doesn't start up again, I can get some work down outside now!

Hi Donna. I have tons of hostas, too, and guess what? They are all in bloom.

Yours look nice, too. Susan

Your hostas are so pretty, I just love the purple blooms. The blooms press/dry nicely if interested. Around here I have to put netting over my hostas because the deer eat them.
Happy Monday to you,
Gina

I adore hosta blooms too. I miss our big bed of various hosta types that we had at our former cottage! And I see that Marty is quite a camera hog and keeps jumping into the framing of your photos, LOL.
