I love new beginnings… Weddings, moving, first babies, a new job, a fresh start. We have this opportunity every spring, every year. A chance to wipe the slate clean and start from scratch. There are so many perennials that give us this great pleasure of new beginnings. Hostas, tulips, iris, gladiolas, creeping jenny, clugsfoot (yes, a bad name for a really cool plant), black eyed susans, alium, peonies, and more. The list is long and so wonderful. Take time today to see what is coming up in your garden. Here are some hostsas that are more than peeping out of the ground. Soon we will enjoy them for the entire summer. They have such a beautiful leaf – just remember to put some slug bait around their base, if you can. Enjoy the continuation of a stunning Spring!
