Hosta Forest

The hosta forest in our front yard is in full bloom. It's such a strange plant, with lush wide green leaves below, then multiple flowers on a single stem which rises high above the leaves to catch the breeze and attract the critters.

I especially appreciate how the stamens - especially the outreaching longitudo pistilli - taunts the bugs with a "come hither" crook of the finger.
