I know Friday’s puzzle was a bit too easy – but I needed some way to discuss the giant hostas we have in our landscape this year:
We have had a very wet and cold spring. While it was misery for us above-ground types, the plants absolutely loved the abundant water. When the leaves open and expand on these continually-watered plants, they reach maximum size. The hosta leaves in this photo aren’t the size of dinner plates – they’re more like turkey platters.
A word of caution to all of you with similar happy plants: when the drier, hotter months of summer arrive, you’re going to have to keep these puppies well watered. Otherwise, the leaves will soon turn crispy and brown around the edges.
