I bought a Seagull 203 (a Chinese camera) as a temporary replacement for my Certo Six. On the first day I tested it with what was at hand - an expired HP5+ and my umbrellas that come to my rescue any time when there is nothing else to shoot ;)
The next week I switched to plants in my garden ;)
This impressive giant hosta was named ‘Empress Wu’ in honor of the only lady emperor of China.

Looks great. Funny sense of scale here! Works good this Seagull.

My mother has about 80 specimens of different hostas.
She told me that this one was called Gigantea
Now your remark (about funny sense of scale) made me do some research.
Now I am sure it is Hosta ‘Empress Wu’ - a giant hosta named in honor of the only lady emperor of China

Une très belle photo. Je me demande si avec ta mère au derrière plane, assise dans le banc ça serait encore mieux...mais peut être tu avais déjá considerée cette possibilité...en tout cas, j'aime beaucoup. :-)

No, I do not have a shot with my Mom sitting at the bench behind the hosta.
It is a good idea - I shall try it one day :)
¡Muchas gracias!
