This little hosta in a terra cotta pot made me stop and think .. " ... now that is a pretty combination !"
The picture is not the best .. it was taken after a rain show .. clarity is lacking ... detail is dragging it's butt behind too ... but it made me smile.
Especially since I scooped it up for a very reasonable price of $5 and change ...
Fire Island is a perfect hosta for my deck .. in a perfect pot ... and look at those red stems ... well you will have to take it from me that there are red stems that look beautiful !
Lavender flowers will follow when it decides to smile for me.
I will plant it in the garden come late summer but for now it is here where I can keep an eye on it and enjoy it even from the kitchen : )
Another wonderful pleasure and gift .. our two wild bunnies and two little chipmunks were playing and nibbling in the garden this morning .. watching them was such a treat ..
I am so glad small pleasures are actually HUGE ones for hubby and I !
