15/365 Unfurling hostas

I have four or five hostas growing around my house, and I've found it interesting to see how they sprout in the spring.

Whereas many mostly green plants stick around in the winter, these completely disappear and die off (above ground). But when it came time to greet the spring, they emerged like bright green straws. Their leaves were curled into a spiral tube, then they unfurled when they reached their full height.

I've seen hostas around for years, but I've never really paid attention to witness this part of their growth. It's pretty cool!

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/2.8 at ISO 1000 at about 7:30 p.m.
