Spring Flowers


I snapped a few pictures while walking the garden today and thought I would share a few spring flowers! In this post you will also find Hosta Guacamole.



The above picture is Hosta Guacamole, this is after the hail storm we had on Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon. We had a thunder-storm that lasted 40 minutes that brought nickel size hail. Then again that afternoon we had another thunder-storm that lasted 35 minutes that also brought hail but was ping-pong ball size. All of my hosta look like this, it made me sick because hosta do not re-grow their leaves but once a year in the spring.


Enjoy your evening!

  1. When I lived in Tennessee I had hosta growing under some big trees. I always loved it. I also loved the Smokies in Spring with the rhododendrons and the wild flowers.

  2. I’m sorry about the hostas Michael—we’re slated for more storms this weekend—ugh–
    the board in the photo looks amazing—
    congrats on the great PR for your works—truly deserved!!

    • Good morning Julie!!! I am slowly getting over the hail damage to all my hostas, not sure that I have shared with you but I have well over 500 hostas. Yes, storms here too Saturday and maybe Sunday, just hope no more hail!! I hope you guys enjoy your weekend! big hugs! 🙂

  3. So sorry about the hostas and all the other hail damage. It’s a gamble every year, isn’t it. At least the rhododendron flowers look intact – enjoy those pretty flowers Michael!

    • Yes, always a gamble, thought we were going to have a late spring hard frost last night but only got to 31 degrees F, not cold enough to hurt anything. The rhododendron flowers are going to be beautiful this year, can’t wait! Enjoy your weekend Cathy! 🙂

    • I hate we had the hail but I guess it could have been really bad, more damage than what we had. The rhododendrons are beautiful and the mountain laurel have just started to make flower buds. It won’t be long and they will be blooming too! I hope you guys enjoy your weekend!!

  4. Such beauties, Michael. Rhododendron, walnut cutting board…
    But I feel sad for your hosta. Same thing happens to mine from time to time. The large-leafed ones look the worse after a hail storm.
