The will to live
2 years ago, in November, we had a sun room added to our home. Unfortunetley it went over the top of a large hosta bed with about 50 hostas. It was too cold to try to save them, so......sob sob......a very heavy layer of black plactic was laid down and then 8 inches of rock dumped on top of them!! The room is about 6 feet off of the ground and it is enclosed with latice and is used for storage of lawn furniture.
Fast forward to Spring. I go under the room and there to my astonishment are several big hosta eyes coming through the rocks. I tried the pull back the rock and dig them out but they were just too far down. So last year, they were very large, this year coming back lots smaller and next year, I'm sure they won't even try.
Isn't it amazing the will for them to live!
