Keep up the good work Don!

The next best thing to sleeping in the early morning is taking hosta pictures!

My favorite are Great Arrival and Big Daddy. I love the drops and fanning out of the leaf of Big Daddy.

Love your shots, Don! Unforgettable and LK got me!

My shots are nowhere near what they could be, but practice makes perfect so I just keep taking pics and saving those that come close to acceptable. Here are a few practice shots. Hope they don't hurt your eyes! Lol

Spilt Milk is interesting...

Don, I'm flattered! ...bravo, your pictures are amazing, I like in particular the green tones of All That Jazz.

Josy, your Split Milk looks like a no signal TV with "snowy" noise pattern :-) ...interesting.

I can't resist to macros, ...like chocolate.

Thank you, LUUK! I must complete the sale (enable, lol) so here is the intro pic when I brought it home...you may have missed it in my post. It is taking on more gold since then as I have it in 1/2 day sun. Here to assist! :-)

Geez guys...I was viewing and enjoying my hostas like that after a couple glasses of wine WAY before macro cameras. They all look so wonderfully hand painted with a water colour brush. That is why I love then so !much. Thanks for the photos...it will save on my liquor bill.

Luuk, What do you say to a Naked Lady? It has the Striptease look I think.

And Jo, I really like your Marilyn Monroe flippy skirt shot.

And Babka, did you realize that 4 hours of time at sea (on a boat) is the same as consuming 1.25 oz of alcohol? So says the brochure given with a BO/BoatOperator endorsement on your drivers license in Alabama. I wonder what consumption level I reached when I was on a boat 24/7 for 4 months at a time? That's how the expression "drunken sailor" originated--it is hard to adjust to solid ground again.
A little nautical trivia.

Don: Love the pictures coming out of your insomnolent dreams.

Glad you picked that up, Mocc - we think alike! :-)

Babka - great sense of humour and wine! :-)

Phil - QOTS photo is equally stunning - perfect leaf. :-)

I've often thought we think alike too, Jo.
It seems I'll keep Naked Lady in the back of my mind as a companion to Tony Avent's Get Nekkid. And I guess that means I need to put a streaker in there at the third plant. :)
Maybe there is a streaker called Skinny Dipping. hmmm. names are interesting. WORDS are interesting to be honest.

Kate, right back atcha!!! That Ghost Spirit is haunting me - I've seen a couple of pics of it already but this leaf shot of yours did me in. I gotta have it! Can you tell me something about it? Would you consider starting a thread? Thanks for considering this request! :-)

Mocc, I have Naked Lady from 2011. Is an eye catching hosta with small/medium size. The colors change during the season, ...an exciting plant :-)
Mine gets full sun until noon, the growth rate is medium to slow .

Here a picture from a few weeks ago.

Well good! I like Gypsy Rose and this one seems to be a neat plant like her mama. I guess that means......a new wish list to begin the fall order for spring delivery.

Only "critical" "urgent" "life or death" orders for the rest of the summer. ....
