Each morning I've been getting up at dawn and taking pictures of my irises. The iris season is winding down so this morning I did a Hosta walk........I will post these in several groups as I took a lot of pictures.

Thanks Cinta.......several years ago when I started visiting garden web sites I posted a few pictures of Hosta and a Lady from back east said she was surprised that Hosta would grow In Utah. We are a desert state but are more than desert and sagebrush. In many of the cities, where a source of water is available, there are many diverse and beautiful gardens. More pictures later.....I need to get off the computer and mop a dirty kitchen floor Thumbs down
