HOSTAS

I am sharing photos of my hostas.
Some I've had for many years.

Hostas are low maintenance perennials, 
do well in the shade,  a great ground cover,
come in many varieties, sizes and colours 
and with it overlapping leaves
adds glamour to any garden.

In the Spring, as they are starting to unfurl,
it's magical...








Hosta is a plant we can plant and forget about.
It becomes more beautiful as the year go by.
If is gets too big for it's space, it can be divided
early in the Spring or in the Fall.

 In Summer Hostas start to flower
In the middle of the plant 
spikes of flowers that resemble 
lilies in shades of lavender or white.
Some flowers are fragrant and 
attract hummingbirds and bees.

September Flowers

Summer has come to an end.
The light, sunshine days and heat
are winding down

Although Autumn flowers
and trees are spectular with color
at this time of year.

Enjoy my little Garden Tour


Rudbeckia are so bright and 
colourful.


My Powderpuff Hollyhocks
have done well this year.
I started them from seed last yr.

They reseed a lot.

Hostas

A great ground cover
and low maintenance.


I live near the Baie des Chaleur
One day while walking on the beach,
I came upon this piece of beachwood.




Eyeing Annie.


After a few days of thinking about it,
I convinced my brother, who has a truck,
to get it for me. It's approx. 8 ft. long.
Luckily it was still there.
High tides didn't take it/him
 out in the deep ocean
or he could have become 
victim of a bonfire.

I think he looks at home
 in my garden below.
Don't you?
I've named him SeaBiscuit.
I'm hoping that SeaBiscuit 
will scare of the deer
that come into the garden
 and eat the hostas
and other flowers.

SeaBiscuit

 I hope you've enjoyed my garden tour.



Thinking of everyone
who have experienced these tragic
hurricanes down south. 
God bless you all.

Thanks for your visit.
