For Cee’s Flower of the Day FOTD Challenge. My large Hosta. The leaves on this thing are about one foot wide. They are the master of all they survey. The stray cat that owns my yard had kittens under there a couple years ago. We noticed them only when we were watering the garden and they ran out from the thundering noise of the water hitting the leaves.
I feel sorry for the tulips that claimed the spot first. Once the hostas started springing forth, they didn’t stand a chance. They too have unusually broad leaves! They are learning to get along.
I noticed on my walk yesterday that the neighborhood birds seems giddy. Take offs and landings have a different energy. They are moving around in larger cliques. A lot of camaraderie, a lot of chatter. Were they always this loud? They have all of outdoors to themselves! No humans disrupting their gatherings. No horns honking. They are reveling in this new found quiet. No droopy faces here.
Sorry, but don’t know the name of this flower. To be honest, I never really do. I’m terrible at that. Its leaves are kinda thick, in the succulent family. My friend was prunning hers, aggresively. So I took it and stuck it in my front yard. Now it’s in bloom, battling the shadow of the mums. I’d say it’s holding its own😊.
