So needless to say, I had to replace them. I have never counted all the different hosta varieties I have, I also can not tell you the names of very many of them. I can tell you I was sad to see that my Elvis Lives was one of the ones to mysteriously disappear. My theory is the #$@%#% SQUIRRELS dug them up. They are always digging around in the flowers beds.
We won't even go into the amount of Lime Ricky, Coral Bells that they have killed over the years, because they insist on digging them out no matter what bed I plant them in. I have a dream that the two I planted this week will survive to see the end of the summer. (Who knows I might be able to post a picture at the end of summer.)
I take so many pictures this time of year. I have so much fun trying to capture the colours of
Spring and the colour of early Summer. Everything looks great and not too over-grown or tired looking.
I have Spring Bulbs like the Orange Fritillaria (don't quote me on the spelling) Purple Allium.
One of my favorite is my Tree Peonies. I have this beautiful pink one that had 30 flowers on it this year. I also have a bold yellow one that had about 5 on it.
My Pink Poppy
and Lupins that the Bees love.
Bachelor Buttons and of course ants.
Annuals that I have no idea what their names are
but I love the splash of colours from them.
Hopefully over the summer I will keep up with the picture taking.
