Night before Christmas

seems comfortably at home amongst the begonias, fuchsias, pulmonaria (Trevi Fountain) and ferns (Blechnum Spicant Deer Fern) - 05/18/2005

NOTE: This one emerged several weeks later than the other Hostas. So much later, in fact, that I thought it had died. I was preparing to plant
something in its place when I sliced off a couple of very healthy looking tips still several inches below the surface. It eventually emerged and is
the prettiest and healthiest of the bunch.
