OK, I lied… [filler #11]

[This is one last shot from my T2i — and a “filler” to boot — before I get the camera repaired or lay it to rest. Taken without benefit of the LCD panel. I think I just set the dial to Auto rather than worry about white balance, which cannot be checked or changed without the LCD panel.]

Our good friend and master gardener, Jeanne, gave Clare a Canna to plant and it's starting to flower! It may attract hummingbirds, but it's on the side of the house with no windows for "monitoring"!

From Missouri Botanical Garden, http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?kempercode=a439 » “Cannas are large tropical plants that produce gladiolus-like flower spikes in summer atop erect stems sheathed in large paddle-shaped leaves. Plants sold in commerce are mostly hybrids ranging from 1.5' tall dwarfs to 8' tall giants. Flower colors typically include red, orange, pink, yellow, cream and some bicolors. Foliage colors include shades of green, bronze and striped/variegated. Dramatic foliage provides considerable ornamental interest when plants are not in flower.”
