Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

My shaded hostas after an evening drink of water and bathed in the golden evening sun. I have been complaining to Patty Gross how my other hostas were just about burnt out with the drought and heatwave and wanted her to see the ones that get regular shade and water.

    Very beautiful shot, Don! This is wonderful the way the sun is gleaming on the hosta leaf! And those water drops look fantastic. I'm sure your hosta plant appreciated it deeply. Very well done, my friend!!!

    Lovely lighting...We have Hosta's also that are in the shade by our front door and that's where they seem to thrive the best..Our roses bushes are another story that don't like this much heat... The lady who I bought the John Cabot rose bush from said it was a plant that didn't require much care...It still does have green leaves minus the roses that were so abundant earlier...maybe it will perk up and flourish now that it is supposed cool off over the weekend:)

    I love Hostas, although I do not see them in my part of the world. My brother had them at his former house and they were beautiful, as is this one. I love the lighting on this!!!
