It continues to be hot and sunny. We went to a few garage sales this morning but didn't find much. DH was off to the local Agri-fair at lunchtime so I had a relaxing afternoon. When he did get home I suggested we go to the nursery since at one of the gs the woman there said that everything was marked down. She had bought all sorts of plants and really inspired me to do the same. ( Not that it takes much. smile.) Here you see what I did get.
I have often wondered if I could successfully grow Canna Lilies. They seem so tropical that they must be difficult. But at the price that they were I decided to take a chance and got a red one and a yellow. I love how dark the leaves of the red one are. I did google Canna Lilies and found that they do need some extra care but probably no more than my Dahlias do. I hope I will have good luck.
The pot in the front with the fountain grass , Coleus, pink Petunia, and more was only 3.98 !!
I think it's so lovely.
The three healthy looking plants on the steps are Victoria Blue Salvia ( .59 cents each). They have nice buds and some of our sunshine should make them bloom in no time.
That was my fun for today. What did you do on this summery Saturday?
