Just in time for Jean's What's Blooming Tuesday.
While looking over the deck railing at my side garden, I admired this color combination of dark purple Buddelia with the black-eyed Susans.
I have two butterfly bushes. The other one is a lighter purple. The lighter one seems to get many more butterflies. It's bigger so maybe thart is why. There is a butterfly on one of these blooms. Did you see it?
It looks like I finally have a true 'Picasso' canna. I bought these this year at the end of June when Home Depot had them half price. What a bargain! They have bloomed true to the package description.
I bought 'Lucifer' at the same, but am still waiting for its bloom.
It appears to be a late, late bloomer.
Here is a zinnia from the seeds I tossed in a few containers.
Perfect splotchy colors for the cannas its planted with!
Tropicanna 'Gold' is putting out some nicely colored flowers.
My first ground-planted canna is about to bloom. That is very exciting for me because I have never had one that I planted in the ground bloom.
Pardon me? Oh, did someone ask what was in the background?

After doing that, don't forget to head on over to Jean's to see what everyone has blooming.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
