Around the yard . . . hosta leaves

The hostas are using all their energy right now for creating flowers, so the leaves are changing shape and form, drying out and curling up, giving their all to the showy flowers.

It's a fascinating process, and one I've not paid any attention to in the past. What a dope! These leaves are great.

The first picture was shot on a dry day. A few days later it had rained in the night, and the morning light and the raindrops combined to make what I think are extremely pretty images.

These three were taken with an iPhone, but I'm continuing with this "hosta project" also using a digital SLR.

Soon the novelty will probably fade, along with the leaves. But for now? This is fun stuff!
