Thank you all for your comments over the past five days. I have been out of town without computer access so have not been able to answer as I usually try to do (had all my posts set to go before I left). I did read and appreciate every single comment. It was one of the first things I did after I got home. You know how I miss all you when I am away!
When I got home yesterday afternoon my poor deck plants were pathetic. They have had no water or attention since last Sunday. I think it did rain on Wednesday, but that was not enough for my pampered babies. They are used to getting a mega load of water every day. Most of the plants on the sunny side of the deck were near death. I gave them all a good drink of water and they perked up nicely after a few hours, but a lot of the foliage was still yellow and sickly looking.
How sad is this?
I also cut off most of the drooping flowers from this big dahlia container, but the bottom foliage is beyond repair.
so I cut it off and then moved a big peach canna to cover its na*ked bottom.
I did have a few new blooms while I was gone.
This is my most interesting canna. I bought it as Picasso, but I don't think it is Picasso. Whatever it is, it's so unusual with it's orange/yellow combination petals. Most of the yellow section have orange dots all over.
My Peruvian Daffodil also put out it's second bloom:
I have another dahlia blooming. I can't remember the name of this peachy/yellow flower. It is probably on my blog somewhere, but I don't feel like looking for it. :)
I am looking forward to catching up on all your blogs.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
