Yesterday at the garden I noticed that several of my Canna plants are about to bloom. I’ll share a photo after the flower blooms, of course. But for me, seeing this plant right before it blooms is exciting, too. It’s a preview, an appetizer. At the same time it’s also a reward. Things happen slowly at the garden. You visit, water, weed, visit again, look, wait, and finally you’re rewarded when you notice that something is about to happen. That discovery makes all the waiting worthwhile.
Who knows? Maybe tomorrow is the day there will be a fiery red flower atop the Canna leaves. I’ll keep ya posted.
