We planted very tall Canna Lilies

flowers.  They are called Banana
Cannas as they can grow over 10 feet

A few shots of the garden
One of Margaret's ornamental
pigweeds came up in the dahlia row.  It
is about 7 feet tall.
Margaret's sunflowers are the first flower row. She
saves the seeds and gets a few new each year too. As
I write this the squirrels are harvesting them.  
Some photos of the gardens as we were getting ready.
And finally, we found our old mail box and painted it dark green. The
local sign shop made the letters. We do not normally have a sign on
the road as we are not open to the public. We put it up just before the
tour and took it down right after.
