Update: Bargain Gardens

August 29, 2009

Remember back in June when I wrote about some clearance flowers I bought from Lowe’s? Well, I had bought some more in July, and I am here to report that I have my first bloom! I was not aware that any of these flowers were still in season. I thought that they were clearanced because they had finished blooming, but these canna lillies have given me a run for my money!

Check out these blooms:



I thought that you might be interested in knowing that even a black thumb like myself, who literally planted and prayed for rain because our hose wasn’t long enough, can get these $1.00 flowers growing. As Eliza Doolittle might say, loverly!

By the way, the other plants appear as if they are going to make it as well. Some plants took a turn for the worse, but have come around. I can only see one flower (ironically, this canna lily’s twin on the other side of the mailbox) that might not make it.

    I knew there was a gardener inside you:-) Canna lilies come back every year, so you will enjoy them for years to come.
