Answer: What's Wrong with this Plant?
I only got 2 answers to my trivia question, and yes, you two were exactly right. The answer was frost damage on the hosta and the Golden Rain tree buds. This spring we have had many nights that have dipped into the low 30's and the cold temperatures have nipped the buds on many plants throughout the gardens. The good news is that the plants will recover and will put out new buds and growth--so the damage will eventually not be so noticeable.
Thanks for participating in our diagnosis session and I hope to post more questions as the season progress.
