Summertime and the flowers are blooooming....











The monster plant is our hosta. At least I think that is what it is. It is the biggest this year that it has ever been! Soon, the leaves will fold down and big stalks will come out of it with little bell shaped white flowers.... The pink daisy - love it! Also, for every one sold at Lowes, they made a donation to the fight for breast cancer. The other daisy has very pale lilac petals, with darker purple centers. Since purple is one of my favorite colors, I just HAD to have it!

Very nice plants, Linda! My mom and her neighbor have a hosta competition thing happening with their yards. They get MASSIVE. My childhood best friend's mother, who is another neighbor of my mother's, collects different varieties of hostas. I always think of Sian's comment when I see hostas, though--she called them penis plants. I think they're beautiful even if it does make one think odd thoughts!! LOL

Yes, indeed, hostas get massive! We have some that are only a few years old and they're already as big as bushes! We've had to divide them a couple of times already. And they thrive so easily.
