Just got my order from Brian's Botanical and set up an area for a new planting. Also decided to pot up a couple of Cannas to brighten things up a bit.

WTG! The leaf patterning on Illustrus makes it one of my favorites.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

Those baby plants look so small and innocent. Who could tell they will be Monster Plants by summer??

Can't wait to see your ongoing pictures, Dave. You will love those Cannas, except of course for the water bills they run up . .
