The Hosta Patch

It's a good year for the hostas.  Sometimes they are totally decimated by the deer, but this year that damage has been very limited - only one of the variegated plants in the front yard has been a victim, and there is one in the back as well.

These plants thrive in the two gardens where they have been planted.  So much so, Mary has been able to thin them by removing two or three plants a year - we've got them transplanted back home in Alexandria, and she gave a few to the neighbors in the hollow.

Last Sunday morning as the day brightened I enjoyed passing the time watching a hummingbird browse the blossoms.
