In spite of the pending storm, our landscape shines. This photo features canna lillies blooming orange/yellow flowers, our crown of thorns is the bright red and one of Kathy's roses shows a pink bloom. In the background, left to right, is a pigmy date palm; a silver bismark palm and the trunk of a sable palm.
