My dog loves to walk through my Hosta garden. I was taking pictures of the blooms and, thinking I had the perfect shot of a single flower, found a surprise: a piece of dog hair hanging from the flower. Enjoy the photo.  Below it is a retake sans hair. DSCN6808


My Hostas are growing well but I have a question that many of you may have an answer for: why are all of the flower stalks facing north? My husband and I do have a theory. The garden is on the northwest corner of our house surrounded by the house to the east and a covered/screened porch to the south. West and North is grass but there is a cream colored wall beyond the grass to the North. We think the flowers are pointing North to the wall because it is bright and the sunlight is reflecting off of it.  What do you think?
