Garden Blogger's Bloom Day - May 2012
I have been very happy with my hosta seedlings this year. These are unregistered seedlings that I started from seed. The first upper hosta picture shows one of the seedlings that has produced a very unusual flower scape. I took pictures and showed them to several hosta hybridizers and they have never seen a hosta produce a flower like this one. I hope that this hosta will produce seed and I plan to divide out the one division with the unusual flower scape after it sets seed. Then it is wait to see what happens with this hosta next year. The other hosta in the next picture, has beautiful red petioles with a very upright form. I like the color on this one.
Now here are some more pictures from the garden.

I am looking forward to next month's Garden Blogger Bloom Day when all of the hydrangeas should be in bloom. This could not have been a better year for a garden tour! That about it for Garden Blogger's Bloom Day from my garden. Time to get back to weeding and mulching!
