Fragrant Hosta Bloom
I'm still here! I have been busy with some painting projects and working in the gardens. As we approach late summer the hostas have been blooming. I enjoy their fragrant funnel white flowers and picked a few to have indoors.
Many years ago I planted a row of 'Royal Standard' along the side of the house. The large mounds are at least two feet high now. It has only been over the past few years I have grown to appreciate the flowers.
Do you have a favorite hosta? I think 'June' is very striking with its variegated leaves and soft lavender flowers.
Wishing you a wonderful week and I will be by to visit.
