The Main Entrance to the Deck
with my only successful seed planting of sunflowers. Their color goes nicely with the marigolds in the deck planter.
Normally if I take a picture from this angle, you would see a pile of junk in the neighbor's yard. The sunflowers have saved you from seeing that eyesore...an unexpected advantage to having sunflowers in this spot!
I planted some red cannas with the marigolds. So far only one has bloomed and, I must say, it is very short for a canna. I actually like it blooming at that size.
The red canna is a new one for me this year. From what I understand it is the usual canna that most people are familiar with. Compared to my 'Tropicana', this red one is blah, blah, blah! If this is the only canna many people have seen, no wonder so many people say they don't like cannas. This one is 'Red King Humbert'. It's supposed to be 5 feet tall.
