Some of my perennials are starting to peek through. And as usual, I'm flustered with what to do with my flowerbeds. But this year, I think I've made a decision. After years of spending way too much money, both on perennials and on annuals, I'm going to go for a lush mulit type hosta bed out front where it's mostly shady. And I'm gonna quit digging them up each year and moving them around and give them a good chance to grow. I might stick in an annual here and there for a splash of color, but mostly thick and lush hostas is what I'm going for. Something like this:
Sigh. That just makes me smile! I even want to put a curve into my beds like that. They are just so squared off and old-fashioned out front. Curves is where it's at! I just love hostas! So many types of leaves, so many variations of color, so tropical looking! Just clicking through this site of literally hundreds of varieties makes my heart flutter! I may even look for one like this:

Holy Hosta, Batman! Is that not wonderful? I'd be the talk of the neighborhood! Where do I get me one of those?
My mind's made up! Hostas it is!
