Parhelion's up and raring to grow!

We have had a nice warm early spring this year and most of my hosta are coming up now. Parhelion, who lives in a big pot, is the furthest along. I counted at least 45 pips and he is now at least a foot tall. I really hope we don't get another frost, but we probably will and I will be scrambling to cover them up.

YAY Spring!

Oh, I remember it from last year, that's a HUGE, beautiful one! It can only be bigger and better this year.

Nice work!

What a happy, happy sight to see. Great pips! (as they say) Yipee!

Do you know...that is my favourite pip shot so far...that's what I call the perfect entrance! Beautiful, upright, tightly bunched, thick, robust, simply gorgeous. There is something about the unfolded leaf ... Holding so much promise - really a thing of beauty....then it gets more outrageously beautiful when it opens up! What a great shot!

Huge plant! My Parhelion is up,too,but only eyes about 3 inches so far,but mine is in the ground,so there is a soil temp. difference. Phil
