Hosta Bud

Hostas are such wonderful plants. They have the most beautiful leaves with such a variety of different tones and patterns, even size. Some types as so tiny, they are suitable only for a trough, while others are enormous. Some have white flowers while others have various shades of purple. This is the bud of one of my hostas, a stage at which I think they are especially attractive.

Stunning colours and shapes in this image. Delicious! I used to grow hostas but gave up as we have slugs and snails on steroids around these parts! But I adore them, thanks for sharing yours.
