I Heart Hostas





Some people might find them boring, but I love hostas. Mostly because I hate gardening and you could hardly kill a hosta if you tried, but also because I love all the different greens.

Coming soon ... a progress report on the Roundabout Leaf Tank.

I love your hostas! I'll have to enjoy them vicariously through you and your pictures, because we can't grown 'em in California. Too bad :(

I love the hostas with just a tinge of blue in them.

My uncle was a hostas lover, too; there's a hostas garden dedicated to his memory in Alton, IL. They always remind me of him.

You are absolutely correct -- it is impossible to kill a hosta. Even if you've been giving it your level best for five years, they will come back every spring, the tenacious little buggers.

That is so crazy! My dad is a freakin' hosta fanatic. Yup, the retired Army colonel is a certified Tennessee Master Gardener, co-founder of the Mid-South Hosta Society, and current president of the Dixie Regional Hosta Society--and he goes to all the big hosta conventions every year. He has about 550 varieties of hostas in his backyard.
And that's WAY more than you probably ever wanted to know about my dad and his hosta obsession.

No, I'm not joking! :)

I'm right there with you. I don't garden AT ALL, but the hostas that the previous owners of our house planted are absolutely thriving. (Everything else has been choked out by weeds.) They look so lush, especially after all this rain.
