How Does My Garden Grow?

The Mouse Ears Hosta is holding its own for a second year. For some reason one has tripled in size while the second is healthy, but just a tiny bit larger than springtime.
The Colimbine Leaf Miner disease, or powdery mildew, persists. And, I persist in dead-heading the affected leaves.

Jacob's Ladder. A new perennial this year. We had a large plant at our old house. In honor of my maiden name: Jacobs.

The Caladium thrives in a favorite pot. The leaves are more faded--I guess due to a bit much sun. Still, I like it there.
