These Hostas like rain. by sarasdadandmom

These Hostas like rain.

It rained again today and the Hostas are ready to take over the flower beds they are getting huge. I took the shot on the left to duplicate what I have seen the real photographers on here do, but I couldn't get as close. P/S quality.
Love rain!! Beautiful collage

I love your closeup!! The composition is beautiful!!

OMG . . . I made my husband to plant no hostas when we bought this house, they took over everything at our old place!!!!!

You photograph, ergo you are a photographer. Excellent close-up of the Hostas, and love all the different colors they come in.

@lynnmwatson we have to divide them from time to time

@aj1268 I guess you are right, I have come a long way from crime scene photos. LOL

Wow...Terry. Great collage, great photo and I love your hostas. I'm so jealous. I want these in my yard! They're gorgeous.
May 23rd, 2011  
cool collage and great looking plants..(jealous)!!
May 23rd, 2011  
Beautiful collage, Terry. The plants look like they're thriving, and I love the droplets.

Love the blue green ones. I was out digging in my hosta bed today -
my plants are much smaller then yours --- it must be the soil additives and all the rain!!
May 23rd, 2011  
Beautiful and lush. I think the hostas have been loving all of your rainfall. Excellent closeup of the rain drops and textured hosta leaves. Well done, Terry!
May 23rd, 2011  
Now Terry, do not get so down on yourself. You are a real photographer, and your photos are good as well.
May 23rd, 2011  
By the way, I think you may need to trim these down a bit or they will take over.
May 23rd, 2011  
@digitalrn I keep dividing them, but I think your right.
May 23rd, 2011  
@digitalrn I know I take a good shot once in awhile but I sure can't compare them to some I see on here. Thanks for the encouragement
May 23rd, 2011  
I love your close-up. It's amazing from a P/S. And, I love all your hostas. My kids think I'm hosta-crazy. Wait until they figure out how easy they are to grow. :-)

I love the lighting on the close up shot plus the angle of the shot...the water droplets look like they are getting ready to roll off.
May 23rd, 2011  
great shot...love that we are able to see other perspectives. nice
May 23rd, 2011  
They are so beautiful!
May 23rd, 2011  
I think some close ups mixed into your collages is a great idea. Doesn't have to be macro but a small interesting detail that is worth noticing. Well done!
May 23rd, 2011  
Those hosta's are really big and beautiful! I love how drops lay on their leaves, so pretty!
May 23rd, 2011  
The whole neighborhood must be in love with your yard, it's so well
kept ...... very soon you will have to share your duties in the police force as
well as a gardener!!! Great job Terry!!!!

@pulguis Thanks I/P but I just do what I am told like all good men do and they seem to do well. LOL
May 23rd, 2011  
@geertje Thanks Geertje. the leaves almost seem like they have oil on them. to repel the water
May 23rd, 2011  
@kalexa Kalexa, thanks for the compliment. I can not believe water beads up on them like that.

@friendie All we do is put mulch on them and in the fall , I dump bags of mulched leaves from the yard. Then till it in the following spring
