I also have some tender succulents that I could trade. Look through my album if I have enough of a plant of your choice I am willing to trade them also for the Cannas I am looking to replace.

Love that ginger and the Oputina Cactus is just beautiful. Sorry I don't have any cannas to trade other than the standard big green leaf red flowering type.
I did finally get all my cannas planted the other day. I'll send you a list later of what other plants I do have to trade maybe you would like them.

Ok Holly maybe we can come up with somethings. Thank you. If I do not get anyone to trade I will order the Cannas. I lost my Mom last year and I just lost it I did not bring the cannas in soon enough. I only have two left. I love the colored leave cannas.

So very sorry you lost your Mother. Very hard to deal with. Somethings just don't seem very important when you are dealing with grief, really small in comparison to what you were dealing with. I am lucky to still have both of my parents but they are aging like all of us and I know it is only a matter of time.

Hi Cinta, I'm sorry about your loss, it is very hard. I lost my mom and my husband and miss them so much. Always keep friends close by and when they say call anytime, take them up on it! That will help. :)

My cannas are very close to flowering so I'm not ready to dig them up but if you would want to wait until Oct. and if you haven't received any by then, I would be glad to send you Canna Tropicanna and Intrigue bulbs for the cost of shipping.

Tropicalover, thank you so much. I have lots of friends and I know they want to help but there is nothing they can do at this point I have to heal before I can even explain the hurt or express what I need to get the help. It has been almost a year and I am crying as I type this. It is just to hard to deal with yet.

I would love to get intrigue again I have looked on the net and it is one that is hard to find. I will shoot you a treemail in October.


I do not mind doing postage but if you see anything in my photobucket you want let me know. If I still have it and it is big enough I will be happy to send it to you.

Cinta, you will never be able to truly express the deep hurt you feel until they go through it themselves but the BEST thing that I found that helped me was having friends around that didn't talk...just sat there with me...that was the beginning of healing, there was no pressure on talking (it is hard to have conversations when your soul has been torn apart) but just having friends there around you and not saying anything was the best medicine. Take care of yourself, your not being selfish, you are trying to find your way to healing those scars which have to be healed.

I will have those cannas ready for you in Oct. I would love to do a trade but I'm out of work again with no income so I cannot do postage for awhile that's why i didn't opt for trading. You have beautiful plants and maybe in the summer next year I will able to do a trade.

I am a bit surprised that it is taking me this long to heal. I have always prided myself on strength and I know my mom would be smacking me if she saw me doing this. She said she lived a good life and her faith had her prepared she went in peace. She was almost 90 looked 60 and did not suffer. This feeling I am going through is stupid.

Anyway enough of that.....

To trade with me does not have to be about money. If you see something I do not have a problem sending it to you and postage for the plants I am looking for. You are saving me money sending me the cannas so it works out the same.

I know what it is like to be out of work been there done that. But right now I am flush and sending a plant here and there is not a financial burden. People along the line have sent me things for nothing so I like to pay it forward.

Treemail what looks good to you. Like I said if I did not kill it last year I can send as a thank you.
