Your hostas will be fine, even if they aren't covered with anything!

Subject: prepping for winter

Our temps dropped into the 30's and 40's a month ago, and I have been 
watching my hostas turn golden. echoing the yellows of a million maple
cascading down over them.  I have always cleaned up my garden at the end
the season  in the hope that I can be off and running in the spring.   
Obviously, this year is different, and maybe that's one of the fun
that keep us on our toes. 

 It's just too cold to do more than plant the many bulbs I always
over-buy as 
I dream of  spring.  Would someone
 be kind enough to tell me if my garden of hostas will survive if I just

leave it under it's blanket of leaves.   Thanks for the usual good
advice I 
often find in this dedicated group of  hosta devotees.
