I was forced inside yesterday due to smoke from forest fires. There is a link at the bottom (I hope) to pictures posted on the hosta forum if anyone wants to see them.

Meanwhile, while I was in the house I put a few more pictures together and played around with my photo program.

In answer to a couple questions about my last pictures, Sept. Morn never seemed to open up in the middle. As the outer petals were ready to be done the center was still full. On the other hand, Beaucon White has two main stems. One is the full flowers shown before and the other has single, open type flowers. This is all happening at the same time.

Fuzzy Wuzzy is adorable. As the flower ages it just seems to push the petals back by the stem. I hope you can see it in the picture below. Any new blooms it's put out have been perfect.

Group pictures first and then the individual ones.
