hosta beds

Though the daylilies are beginning to bloom, the garden is a little sparse on color right now. The earliest daylilies, like ‘Black Eyed Susan,’ ‘Stella d’Oro,’ and ‘Bitsy,’ are blooming well. Others are just beginning to open, like ‘Priceless Pearl.’

'Priceless Pearl'

While we wait on the daylilies, there are a lot of other things to see. We are really enjoying the hostas. This bed is under the Southern Red Oak in the back yard.

This row of hostas is by the carport, near the back door.

This hosta bed is under the old mulberry tree in the backyard.

We have ‘June’ in two places in the yard. This one, under the mulberry tree, is in deep shade and the color is soft and dark.

‘Fried Bananas’ is a quick growing hosta and doesn’t mind some sun.

This bed near the front porch will look a bit neater once it is mulched. The hostas are (left to right) ‘Torchlight,’ ‘Royal Standard,’ and ‘Grand Tiara.’

We don’t know the name of this one, but it’s a pretty one.


‘Squash Casserole’…one of my favorites.

I have other hosta pictures, but I’ll save them for another day. Here’s a look at a few other garden gems. Aren’t the hydrangeas beautiful? I love these plants.

North of the fenced garden is Miscanthus ‘Morning Light.’ Very pretty in even the smallest breeze.

These red lilies bloom in several parts of the yard.


In a few weeks there will be a lot of color to share when the daylilies put on their show.

    We have a huge hosta – will have to take a picture to share with you. When should we split it and how?

    Tricia, we’re planning a plant sale for Saturday, June 2. The same day as the city-wide yard sale. Hope you can come by! If not, stop by any time. ~~Rhonda
