Tasha and I have been making miniature Hosta and a video tutorial for you folks to enjoy.
She is quite content with the Hosta but she is even more proud of her new garden apron. She has been going on and on for me to make her a garden apron with pockets for some of her tools. I had a scrap piece of linen from an old skirt I had once, That scrap piece was just enough for making her an apron. Tasha is also wearing her new spring green shawl for today´s photo shoot.
We are still waiting for spring to arrive here in Denmark and the days are quite chilly. The last few days we have had snow again and it feels like spring is still far away.
One of the plants in my 1:1 garden which I love most and long to see is Hosta. I have a wide variety of them and I enjoy them more for the leaves than for the flowers. In the beginning of summer last year I picked some leaves and photographed for making a print sheet. This is Hosta Sieboldiana “Great Expectations”.
Did you know that Hosta is edible? I didn´t before, but I read somewhere that the young rolled up leaves are very delicious steamed and served with butter. I have to try that this year in the early summer before the slugs takes over the plants.
You will find the print file for the leaves in the “Freebies” section above. You can print as many as you like and you can sell the finished plants if you want. If you do make my Hosta, I am always happy to get a photo or a link to your blog post to see what you have done. I will also be more than grateful if you pay tribute to my work and post a link to my tutorial and free print file.
To watch the video tutorial just poke the picture and you will be send directly to YouTube. I hope you´ll enjoy it and feel inspired to have a go with the Hosta making.
Wish you all a wonderful day
Tasha and Annie
