Here is Grand Tiara, she's in a pitiful looking way right now compared to how stunning she was only a couple of weeks ago but 2 dormant eyes have woken up and are coming out of the soil now.

Here are Praying Hands and one of the unidentified hosta "bulbs"/crowns I got from the managers here in February. Praying Hands is growing slowly but it has about 6 or 7 new leaves since last photographed.

Here is Fire Island, still putting up leaves as it will all season until late. A couple new eyes have emerged, too. But, a cutworm has gotten to her! Grrrr!!

My vincas also dealt with fungus/whatever issue. Vinca 1 died off about 75% but is making a wonderful comeback, as well... New growth and blooms.

Your garden is really coming along! Congratulations!

Brandy, your Wolverine is trying to crawl out of the pot! Love the looong leaves!

Your hostas and cutie-pie pretty pink vincas are looking good, girl! Makes the boy-hostas look good too! Lol

Brandy, you are gathering quite a large number of hosta. No longer will one or two pictures include them all. Good sized garden, very pretty results....

RE: Most of my hostas and my vincas today. *Pic Heavy*

Thank you! So glad I found this board last year because I'm pretty sure I drive my friends crazy on facebook bombarding them with pics of my hostas every other day! HA!

I am very impressed with Wolverine so far. He's a studly looking guy, I must say!

Grand Tiara has 3 dormant eyes coming through now. She's on her way to recovering.
