Superb macro, Karen! I hybridize hostas and grow hundreds of them on my property. You've captured their lush beauty so well. Instant fav for me!!! :o) #1685595

Thanks so much Joanna and John. We have 5 acres and I would love to have hostas mixed in with the natural ferns, but the deer love them also. I have two and they are in pots behind a 6 foot fence, which keep the deer out. #11592051
