Smooth Operator

josephines123 z5 ON CanadaAugust 18, 2013

Good Sunday morning everyone! :-)
Looks like I missed out on the hilarity of the hi!jack! I think all of that photosynthesis and chlorophyll has amped up our creativity!!! I can just imagine what an evening of libations with you would be like....should be put to the test sometime..hm? Or is the fantasy better than the reality? LOL

HERE'S your chance to join the brag rag...post PICS of your SMOOTHIES (even if they are immature but destined to wrinkle, crinkle, twist, turn, whatever...as long as they are smooth now)..thanks for the inspiration Paul!.. :-)

Jo

Here's a 'brighter' Marilyn Monroe with not enough shade...have greener pics, but this is interesting and 'smooth'

Clarification....a smooth surface regardless of edges that wave, pie crust, etc.

Dan Patch, a recent introduction of a fragrant hosta from Savory's

Olga's Shiny Leaf, on the fragrant hosta list....it is NOT the Olga you might think, but a different one.

Moonlight Sonata...resting a bit after blooming

Grape Fizz, from the Solbergs, is a smooth operator, I have two now.

Poseidon, another newish fragrant smoothie.

Obsession is a dark smoothie, and I think it is too often overlooked. It's taking a good bit of sun these days.

Teatime....how do you like this silken leaf?

Nightlife....hmmmm, I must really like the dark shiny smooth leaves because I have a LOT of them

and finally
Lederhosen...which begins powdery blue and turns into a shiny patent-leather dark green smoothie. Plus it's fragrant. Here are my two showing variations in the color and shine.

Hi Jo. 'Invincible' wavy, yes. Smooth? To be certain.

The 'June' twins, still showing a smoothness they might lose in later years...

Oh Donna! A LARGER GRAPE FIZZ? WhooooooooOOOhMY.I dearly love it. That is not your average Grape Soda I see. I had no idea this lay in my two plants futures! That is absolutely DDG....Drop Dead Gorgeous. Amazing.

How old is this one? Thank you for showing it to us.

This is the photo of 'Grape Fizz' that was accepted into the hosta library. Can you believe that this is year two! It is a very late bloomer, and I will post a photo when it blooms in a couple of weeks.

Some of these may develop more bumps as they age, but for now there is 'Guacamole'....

Here is the smooth Don Juan presiding over the pot party....lol
My very own first and new "Guacamole Don" blooming away, lovely delicate scent ...so far, I get one bloom open at a time...hopefully next year it'll have more scrapes, more open blooms. I think I NEED to get more same . ...Don in Colorado has the right idea...more plants/more blooms/=more scent.

Forgot pic in original post, duh me!
