Today around the garden

The weather has been wet for seven straight days; we went from a record setting drought to a Noah’s ark type of floods in a one-week time.

Canna Lily

A rare event all my cannas are blooming at the same time

Grass on steroids
This is what happens in South Florida when it rains for seven days straight.

This little guy followed me from Disney World.

Rusty I love your peacock! I was out of town during much of the rain and shocked at all the foliage in my yard when I returned. I will post some photo in a day or two.

Rusty it is amazing when specific bulbs/plants bloom at the same time isn't it ? and the grass on steroids was too funny !
I love that peacock too : )

We have grass on steroids,too.The down side of gardening,I guess.
And the yard-art peacock is fabulous!

Tell me about it, we cut our grass last Thursday and by Monday it needed cutting again!

Grass on steroids. Exactly. Get rid of it. That's what I'm doing (kind of). I've never been a big fan of grass (all that fertilizer, weedkiller, water) what a waste. I know it's a bit radical - but there you have it. Nice cannas and Disney peacock.

My grass is on steroids as well. God water is something else. Love the little guy who follow you home!
