HOSTAS AND BAMBOO By Cecelia Lyden

I chose the same area as Julie at the Lindenwood Estate. My emphasis, however, was the alley between the hostas, Hostas Alley[Julie's name] and its view of the tall bamboo trees. I also loved the contrast of the bright green, sunlit ferns against the dark, in shadow, base of the bamboo trees. I'm a "sucker" for strong light contrasts.

"Host Alley" I like your variations of greens. Happy that people are finding things to paint at the showhouse.
