Jeri, You should because your garden is gorgeous! I was holding back hoping I would not be a one person show here. I know you ladies have flowers so post the pictures dad gum it. Hilarious!

Today, I`m doing some clean up and mowing. It looks strange the way the grass is short in places and tall in other places. I`m still watering too. I have a few pictures of the flower bed taken the last few days.

Hi Jeri,

I fixed it. That canna is from some seeds I planted. I hope it proves to be winter hardy and productive. Karen

Another canna from seeds. I think the last bloom is usually mid to late November but I have seen flowers as late as mid December. Karen

It might be better to cut a division in the spring because the seeds are very unpredictable. I can give you some seeds to play around with if you don`t mind picking through the blooms. Sure, will do that! Karen

Hi Dollie,

A little birdie told me to check in here. I just happened to log in and check the Mid South Forum. It is slow because of the cold and not much going on around here. Nice to see you again and Thanks! Karen
