Canna Lilies



My mother has complained in the past that no one gets to see her beautiful canna lilies. Now the whole world can see! These were not her best ones but some that were in a shady spot and bloomed late. Her best ones had already bloomed when I was there so I missed them again.

Dot, these are very pretty. I've got a whole bed of them growing outside of my bedroom window. I hope that they do good this year, because my plum tree is taking over - it needs to be pruned this fall. Cannas attract all kinds of things - butterflies, humming birds, even little froggies.

Nice shots Dot. Cannas are quite common over here, though they have been introduced. They make such a nice show of colour when flowering.

Please tell your Mother that, I can't imagine her 'best.' If these are an example of her 'late' ones.

Just beautiful. :-)
