Hosta Hill and Roses

Well as the spring rolls on the hostas are popping out of the ground.  There are still many more to show up yet!  I've outlined the hill with coral impatiens and on the other side I'm trying out wax begonias.

 The sweet woodruff is blooming and looks so pretty!

 This is a row of  June hostas.  It's a good performer.  The sweet woodruff has jumped the border line.  I'll be removing some as this is supposed to be a path to the backyard.

 This hosta is called Hump Back Whale.  I planted it in September of last year.  It's coming up nicely and is going to be a giant one.  We had some hail that damaged some of my hosta leaves.

 This miniature crested iris is always a delight.  They've hidden themselves among the sweet woodruff.

 Early morning shots show the hosta are actively growing.

 The Jack Frost Brunnera are blooming very nicely right now.  They continue to grow as the season goes along.

 I captured this the day before.  It's a double primrose!  Isn't it fancy!!

I dug out a hydrangea shrub that basically never produced flowers and replaced it with a new floribunda rose called Cherry Parfait.  

So that's my gardening update!

I’m joining:
Dishing It & Digging It


  1. Oh, please don't tell me this is your garden because if it is (and I know it is) I will feel (and I do) like the most inadequate human being in all the world, at least when it comes to the garden. It is like a little haven and it's so very, very beautiful. I am in awe!

    1. Well thank you Jeanie! It is my little haven and it gives me plenty to do!

  2. Oh Liz the beautiful of your garden. What a welcome site after the long and harsh winter we had. Swooning over your prettiness already showing. Beautiful.
    Hugs and Happy Friday and have a great weekend.

    1. Thank you Kris- yes it was a long winter and a drawn out spring! So glad to finally be out of all that nastiness!

  3. Liz, your gardens are beautiful!! Spring looks very good in your backyard! Enjoy the show!


  4. Liz...your ‘hosta hill’ has been my inspiration for my ‘pine bed.’ It’s coming along nicely...but still has a way to go to match yours. Thanks for all the inspiration...happy gardening! ;)

  5. Wow, Liz, your garden takes off like a rocket! It's so beautiful already! You have quite a bit of color along with your lovely hostas. The new rose is lovely!

  6. Your spring garden is just beautiful. The hostas are grows and the leaves of the Hump Back are perfect. The woodruff is so pretty' glad to know its name. I'm ahead of you here in western Kentucky as my hostas have started blooming. My daylilies started blooming June 1. Take care.

  7. Your gardens are so beautiful Liz...I love hostas but the deer around here eat them for dessert! Have a fabulous week!

  8. I'm loving your beautiful shade garden and wish I had more of shade in my yard. It's going to take a couple more years but hopefully I'll get to plant some of that gorgeous Brunnera! I love the that plant and the texture it gives.

  9. Liz, your gardens look so beautiful and I love all of your hostas. Our hot summers are hard on mine, and I have lost a few. The Cherry Parfait rose is gorgeous! Happy gardening 👩🏻‍🌾

  10. Liz,
    All of your flowers and plants are just lovely!! The hostas do so well in shade. I have a few out back under a tree....Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to comment!!

  11. Liz,
    Gorgeous Garden with hosta and roses!
    I'm trying two hosta for the first time this year.
    So far they are thriving with all of our rain!
    I love the planter mixed with a spike, Diamond Delight
    (euphorbia), Impatiens and Creeping Jenny!
    Stunning combination!

  12. Liz, I have missed you. I do love your beautiful garden. All the cute things tucked in here and there. Blessings to you sweet lady. xoxo, Susie

  13. Liz, your garden is so beautiful. I would enjoy sitting on your patio and taking in the quiet, cool beauty of this space. I SO miss being able to grow hostas now that I am in Florida. Boo. But, yours have given me so much joy today!


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
