Tobee, I generally don't like Canna Lilies. To me they usually just look good 2 days. But this one is absolutely gorgeous. Is there anyway to clone that one? I have Gibberish Acid, Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
I am going to the store where a "know it all" said this beauty was on the sales rack!!! Duh, I don't think so!

Tobee I do think you and Lou will really like the SE group better than the NE Fla. gardeners. They are so much fun and I love them all.
Here is Brinda's new house; http://homesite.obeo.com/viewer/default.aspx?tourid=504979&l...
You moved out of 4,000ft and she's moved in to 4,700+.
I went out in the rain and pulled 2 huge barrels of weeds this evening.

Dale what is the name of that coleus?
I was out yesterday and Friday in search of my favorite Tropical; Copper leaf, aka Acalypha.
I finally found 4 different kinds, one being Ceylon which has ruffled bronze to green leafs with pink rickrack.
I also got one that also ruffles and has a pinking shear edge, but is much more delicate leaf that is all a solid brown/purple color.
Hi Nancy, so glad to see you over here.
Tobee I will try to get some pictures for you.
Got to get to the garden.

Sidney, The above coleus was a volunteer, back when I had the greenhouses.

Hap, I believe you are still all there.

This was a volunteer also>

i'm FINALLY back!! whopppppeeeeeee!!

hiya shirley!!!! nice to see you too...or your typing too!! LOL

thanks nanc.....can't miss meeting ya'll...

the wedding was exhausting....black tie...

my brother showed up with his new wife, her new breasts...( i assure you seen by all!) and a leather jacket...o my! since this party was 2/3 nerd scientist and such....not quite appropriate. yikes...and i was sent to not only care and dress and feed my parents, but to run the interference that my sister (who's daughter it was that was getting married), did not commit murder....since she was close to that point when my brother showed up like that...suffice to say....lou and i arrived home late since houston had t storms backing all flights...we arrived home at 3 am....NEVER again!!!

my poor new neighbors were watering my gardens and were so worried because they lost a few things....they were not "tending" just watering...poor sweet kids thought they killed things while it was only dead leaves etc...

here's the BEFORE:
