Carpe Diem #1721 Canna Lily

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our wonderful Haiku Kai, the place to be if you like to create Japanese poetry and share it with the world. This month we are creating a bouquet of field flowers and today I have another nice flower for you, which not always is seen in wild nature, but often in gardens, but it can be used in a bouquet. Today I have chosen "Canna Lily", and it is a gorgeous flower.

Canna Lily "Firebird"

The cannas in your garden will keep you ensured of colour around you from spring right through to the end of summer. And the colour that semi-dwarf Canna 'Firebird' provides is one you will want to be there for a good long while. This plants tall spikes bear a clump of bright red blooms at the top which open in succession. Cutting old stems will ensure that the flowering continues as long as possible. Canna 'Firebird' has long upright blue green leaves which set off the flowers to perfection.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submisisons and will remain open until August 15th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new weekend meditation later on. For now ... have fun and enjoy the "fireworks" in your garden.
