My beautiful hostas are emerging for yet another season! Some much more timid than others about the chilly nights which still plague us. I love seeing them come up. The brilliant purple coverings of their penis like shafts poke up through the soil as if making love to Mother Nature. The way they unfurl their leaves... the distinctiveness of the way they choose to show themselves in the spring is truly fascinating. These pictures, all taken on the same day, show only a small sampling of how different they can be.
