Nature..........

I have bunches of these purple flowers all over the back garden.  They are about 30" tall so they stand above most other plants.

The only sewing I did yesterday was on tote bags for a service project for my church.  I transplanted one Hosta and pulled some more weeds.
The Cannas are coming up.  There are 5 groups of them making a half circle around a peony bush.  The pipe is a marker at the center of my yard for the lot line.  Three of the Cannas are planted on my neighbor's side of the lot line.  They guy they have mowing for them never mows that area so I cleaned it up and did the planting.
I love my Hostas!!  This is the newest spot that I planted last fall.

Today I have church sewing circle and maybe I'll mow the grass.  Then I need to get some borders cut for my Kaffe fabric quilt.

Love your hostas! But those purple flowers look like Purple Bellflowers to me.

Lovely hostas! I had a nice grouping until, I guess, the voles took them out one by one.

All the various shades of greens and shapes in the last photo look like a colorwash quilt in greens.

You have been keeping busy in the yard! The hostas are beautiful. I am enjoying this cooler weather too. I will have to get out and mow the backyard and pull a few weeds tonight after work.

Linda is right about the Hostas creating their own kind of color wash effect. I"m sure yours do make you happy. (p.s. One of our neighbors is a Master Gardener who specializes in hostas - he has 100s of varieties in his yard.)

I see why you love those hostas, they are so pretty. When they bloom, I'm sure you get a variety of colors and smells.

I used to grow hostas in Alabama. They are really neat plants. I don't think they do well here. At least I haven't seen many.
