My Canna variety is tropicanna black

It's more orange than the photo suggests and a real statement

What a lovely rose!

 This came out to play,  first year I've ever grown Cannas, always thought they were too exotic for me

Morning all

Where has my week gone? Monday was full day gardening,  yesterday was shopping, then gardening, then my sons were all done to go out for middle one's birthday meal and today is a trek across town for my youngest college interview then rushing back in time for driving lessons, of course all this hiking would be faster and easier if I was driving now 

Oh well, it's keeping me fit considering I have no time for gym today

Mine is thick and strong and  virtually indestructible  my hair dresser is so lovely about it, I don't feel half as guilty as I used to and she always gets a big tip

Oooooh I've got my first Canna flowers popping. The evening sun shines right on them and they light up like flames, beautiful 

Have a great trip EDD, lovely vessel 

Glad you have had time in your garden today BL 

And Lesley, what have you done to your foot? ! I do hope mum is alright and you manage your holiday without the wobble

Back from shopping in town plus the big GC. Felt like a pack mule again,  can't wait to be driving 

Bought some more of the same plants I already have because I have no patience to wait until I propagate but also, will need plenty more when I do. Also picked up 3 purple sedum. Always wanted this plant and have some gaps in middle garden so... 

Seeing as it's jolly hot here now, bikini time

Great work hrs WW in this day and age 

BL,  so sorry to hear about your garden,  I'm guessing the house sitting business is a dodgy one 

Sunny here today and I'm off to the big GC  yippee 

What's the star in your garden right now

Do you have a pointy hat and magic wand nut? 

We know this kind of thing always goes to sh*t,  especially if they are novice
