The flowers are starting to grow in leaps and bounds and yesterday my stargazer lilies opened. Have a look!

Anyone else have garden photos to post? Please share!

Hi, here is a picture of my hosta beds.. This was taken late May, please don't look to closely for weeds, cause you just might find them. ;)

Oh Diann, I gasped when I saw your picture. It really is Hosta Heaven!

I think I see a couple H. sieboldiana 'Elegans'--is that right? They are just striking focal points.Also some bearded iris? Such a lovely, lovely setting!

Thank you Marilou. :) Yes, you do see a Sieboldiana Elegans, but the larger hosta is a Blue Angel. Next to the Elegans is a hosta seedling that I just let grow. I think it turned out nicely. Yes, I do have iris in that bed, and bleeding heart, lily, daylily, and a wide mix of other perennials. :) Some day I'll post some pictures of my mixed perennial beds that are in the sun. :)
