Hosta la vista, baby!

7 posts in this topic

Yeah, yeah, I know, Telly Savalas was a LONG time ago! Just couldn't resist. gringrin

I was out to change the nectar in the hummingbird feeder when last night's rain collecting in these hostas caught my eye. I am a hosta fan from way back, they being my favorite shade perennial, and so of course we have quite a few around the place.

When I find myself in a rut photographically, I like to walk around the yard or go out into the woods, places I know intimately, and try to see them in new ways.

Feeling a little ruttish lately, I explored some hosta, with the woods to follow. The only limits to the way we express the world are limits we set ourselves.

My wife has hostas and I've never taken a second look at them. You make even these look interesting.

The second shot does it for me.

Wasn't Kojak's line "Who loves ya baby"?

The Terminator's was "Hasta la vista baby". grin

    • What are your guys favorite chatterbaits and conditions to throw these in? Any favorite trailers to use? What type of setup/line do you like to use with them?  Thanks.
    • We had a period in August where the wind wasn't too bad but since sturgeon opened there's been a weekly pattern of fronts coming through on Thursday/Friday and Saturday is WINDY then on Sunday when you're going home it's beautiful. Today and yesterday are no exception either. Although the forecast for this weekend seems to be nice.    With sturgeon coming to an end on Friday I'll probably be fishing muskies. Darn!  
    • Ya I am really in a box on this one, whatever will I do when there are never any good mainstream candidates to vote for?  I'm not sure we could have two worse options than the trash on stage last night. We all deserve better.
    • So who won, crazy Donald or big money republicanish Clinton?
    • So I gather by your lack of gloating that lije the rest of the country you think he lost the debate?  I wasn't interested enough to watch it from gavel to gavel but from what I saw he just got his butt handed to him by the mist vulnerable Democratic candidate in many decades. 
    • Great start for the team.  With a healthy Teddy, AP, and O-line we would have been really excited to be 3-0 having played Green Bay and Carolina.  Being 3-0 without Teddy, AP, and with a patchwork O line is almost unbelievable.   I do still have concerns about the offense.  They D can't win every game for them so the O will need to figure it out sooner or later.  If they can be even an average offense then I like our chances but right now they are far from even being average.
    • Well... The beast didn't suffer lazy eye, no coughing jag, no seizure, no chicken wobble. I guess that constitutes a win for the libs ?? Hahahaha.. Although, I think the beast used all her ammunition. Whereas, with two debates to go, the donald still has a lot of ammo.... Including a few grenades....
    • Trump may want to ask Johnson to be included in the upcoming debates because standing there and having Hillary hand him his butt all night isn't doing him any good.
