Carpe Diem’s Haiku Kai Welcoming the Spring Retreat 2017.
The theme is “fragile beauty”.
Did you know?
Hostas are deciduous, they break through the ground in early spring, they are not that fragile but slugs and snails can ruin the beautiful foliage of the leaves which makes them look very unattractive.
Most of the varieties I had growing on the farm had a showy floral display in shades of white, blue or, most commonly, lilac-purple shades in late spring or early summer.
This photo was taken not long after they show their sprouts through the ground they grow very quickly.

colors of life joys
new hostas leaves appearing
spring is in the air
green and yellow as the sun
summer must be coming soon
