Green with envy, for sure! Wow, your hosta leaves are gorgeous. Great clarity and detail showing the veins. The full frame and size of the leaves surely does make a beautiful visual, I think green is the 'it' color... an excellent view!

Gorgeous color! As the trees in my back yard have gotten larger, I have resorted to hosta to fill in the shady spots. I love all the varieties and variations. Beautiful image!
