Some more hosta

The last of the hosta is blooming. Odd as it may sound, the first hosta up in the spring is last to flower. This crop of hosta (if you have a better term, please tell me) is not some exotic cultivare. This hosta comes from the mother-in-law, Shirley, in Elmhurst, Illinois and a friend who hates hosta. It is a medium leaf green with a lavander flower. The bees swarm over the flowers from dawn to dusk. They are so interested in the flowers that they're not even bothered when I'm taking pictures.
