Hosta Flowers

Hosta Flowers

It has been a while since the picture posted here was taken the day before. I had a quick run around the garden yesterday with the D70 and 24mm/1.8 Sigma lens and got this picture of an unidentified Hosta variety. Hostas usually doesn’t get to bloom in this garden because the deer and rabbits pretty much reduce it to a few stalks by the time it is suppose to bloom. They didn’t get his one this time as it is under the deck with a few leaves and flowers poking out. The flowers are nothing special on Hosta in IMO. There are a few fragrant varieties that are nice but for me it is all about the foliage.

In my low-key project to shoot pictures of a few NYC landmarks this summer here is the United Nations Building on the east side of Manhattan. Here is the story of the complex from Wikipedia.

They are lovely flowers, but I agree with you about the foliage. Great ground cover.
