I'm doing a happy dance for you! How wonderful what a little rain will do. We are now getting some very hot days, did reach 102 last Friday and hoping we will survive. We usually don't get much humidity, but it is here and making everyone miserable. Love your crape myrtle.

Thanks, Pegi. I love that crape myrtle too and it just keeps getting prettier.

Maybe my rain dance worked! Smiling

Just read this post and was happy to actually see some of your reborn plants. Since we dwell in parallel universes and my garden greens up, can yours be far behind? Green Grin!

P.S. Great shot of the banana canna. Glad its doing well. If you want more plants, just scatter mature seeds this fall wherever you want canna plants next year.

IF it makes it to the reseeding point.

Yep, parallel lives. You just always get there first. Must be the age difference, ya think?

"Ya gotta have hope, miles and miles of hope!" Unless some unforeseen catastrope strikes, it WILL make seed.

Definitely the age difference.
