Such beautiful colors on this hosta! Our hosta bloomed real early this year and the heat forced me to move some from the now (with missing oak tree) sunny areas of the rock garden. I am not giving up on them yet as I love them as much as the buzzers….
Thanks Skeeter, I’m sure yours will be back next spring, their pretty tough plants. :)

Some hostas have the prettiest blooms. Beautiful picture.
I agree, thank you Lona. :)

Beautiful! We gardeners tend to collect hosta for their neat foliage, forgetting sometimes that they do have pretty flowers too!
Thanks Jennifer, you are so right. I tend to gravitate towards their foliage myself, but this is one that I truly love the blooms too! :)

Beautiful photo, Racquel! There are some people who cut off the blooms of hostas, but I really enjoy them every summer.
A belated Happy Birthday to your son!
Thanks Rose. I do too, especially these because their so large & smell so good. Thanks for the belated b-day wishes for my son too. I’ll pass them on to him. :)

Love your wordless Wed. Some do not like hosta flowers but I think they are lovely and sometimes the scent is gorgeous.
Thank you Rosemary, I love the flowers on some Hostas especially this one. :)
