Saturday Photo Hunt --- Stripes






STRIPES



Maybe I am stretching this theme a little, but I am very fond of the stripes of nature which turn a plain green plant into a very interesting display. None are better than this variegated hosta and though I love all hostas, I find this simple one of the most pleasing additions to my garden.


Striped or variegated hosta

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

It's great to be back to Photo Hunt once again.

So many hostas - wonderful!. I love them but sadly so do the local slugs and snails. Here a hosta is better known as slug caviar!

I love the way you showed us stripes in nature. Those are beautiful hostas. I didn't even think about my variegated hostas. I hope you have a great weekend home after all your travels.

That's a beautiful hosta JMB.
Mine are the plain variety though I do like their flowers. Jams is right - the slugs do a number on ours too.

Welcome home! I do like the photograph, and I'm off to read your coming home post below. I always enjoy your view of the world.

If we close on the townhouse we are bidding on I shall have a wee garden again! I'm very excited about that, and what will be my 'office' opens right onto the garden so mayhap I shall have some plant photos of my own soon eh? or movies... I received a FLIP camcorder for my birthday - the wee thing fits in my hand!

Welcome back one more time.

Your Hostas are lovely. So far there is no sign of mine in the garden. Spring is soooo late.
