Anyone who has looked through my paintings probably realized, by the number of Hosta paintings, that Hostas are one of my favorite plants. We have a lot of shade around our house and we first bought several Hostas because they could tolerate shade. Once I saw their broad, ribbed leaves, beautiful shades of green, and jungle-like appearance, they quickly became my favorite.
We have a jungly flower bed against our house, and one of the joys of summer is watching the organized chaos of its growth. Here is the best Hosta photo that I have taken so far this year.
