Saturday Photo: Let's Hear It for Hostas

Maybe 15 years ago I bought three hosta plants for, if I remember correctly, $4 a piece.  I planted them in front, where I'd begun the slow process of eliminating the lawn. 

What a success!  They now line the walkway in front and the flower plot in back, fill in the space between the property line and the garage.  I've given many plants away as I thinned out mine, so at least a dozen neighbors also have a plethora of hostas.

These aren't the big specimen plants which you find in garden centres these days, but a rather modest striped leaf, blue flower variety.  But I think they're just about the greatest easy-care garden plant around.  And they're just starting to bloom this year.
