Most of my hostas have emerged. I've got only a handful out of over 200 that have not and those include the ones that are always late as well as a couple that were struggling last year. And then there's one that I think I may have potted as it's no longer in the ground where it was getting crowded last year and I seem to have a couple of unlabelled pots. Just waiting to see what they look like.

Here are a few - pictures taken last Friday. Some of them were noticeable more advanced even yesterday.

Thank You! I've got more recent pictures, but I was away for 10 days and the garden is behind and the pics not completely edited. I'll post more when they are.
