A Short Spin Around the Yard

This is little "Baby Tears" in bloom! The blossoms are softly striped. I forgot to check out whether the blossoms are scented...
I inherited these hosta from friends. I don't know the name of this variety, but the white blossoms certainly brighten a shady spot!
This is Tenryu. I understand it grows in the wild along riverbanks in China. The flower scape grows around 5' tall. I'm 5' 4" and it hits my nose.
I need a hosta expert. I don't know this variety... it was already in this bed when we moved here nearly 5 years ago. It's a "blue."

And look at these fungi! Always thought of myself as kind of a fun "guy!" ;-) But, these may have me beat.
This is a close-up of the following photograph.
There were many more of these...
And, aren't these something?

You can see these aren't very large... the grass is the "size-ometer."
I really must get out more! Lots of interesting things to see in a shady garden!

You're hostas look great! I know know about the blue one though. We have a similar one, but just like you, it came with the house.

Great blog, by the way! I've been enjoying it.
