Last night we decided to go out to dinner with my in-laws. Since my mother-in-law loves gardening and has a beautiful yard I decided to take my camera and see what was blooming. These photos show what I found.
The neat thing about the Texas star and the blackberry lily is she took seeds off my plants that were in GA and planted them in her garden here. (One of the hardest things about moving from GA was leaving all my plants). So now I'm collecting seeds from these plants and am going to plant them here.
But the Canna has a story on its own. It seems my mother-in-law is a plant thief. She probably traveled around with a shovel and bucket all the time. (Doesn't every gardener?) She told us the story of how one time when they were in Oxford for a football game they stayed at a Holiday Inn. She spotted the Canna and thought how pretty it was. Well when they were getting ready to leave either she or he dug while the other kept a look out. Now, of course, she has plenty in her yard.
