Spring in our Yard

Spring is here and the temps have been in the low 80's so our plants have a great start.   We have been purchasing some greenery and flowers for the front yard. I thought I would post some pictures of what we have accomplished the last two weeks.
We have picked up some cannas for the back and this one has been growing an inch a day.  Then the flowers opened up yesterday.  I love the vivid red color.

These cannas are back by the shed and getting ready to bloom also. 
Our lanai has different flowers that bright up the area.

This is one of the five different colors of day lilies that we have planted in the front.   They are doing amazingly great also. 

Planting this date palm took a great deal of time and the fifteen day lilies have been incorporated within in the pine mulch. 

How about a picture at sunset of the park entrance by Fort Pickens.  Sunsets here often seem to be sent to us from Heaven. 
Today I got a coupon on line to get a hair cut with $5.00 off the regular price.  Then we went to dinner at Hemingway's with a $5.00 coupon.  I also had two coupons for dental floss - a dollar off for each so it only cost 4 cents for each floss.   That means I saved $12.00 today with coupons.  Yea for me!  Dad's back has been bothering him from digging when we planted the flowers.  We flipped Mom and Dad's mattress and it seemed to help Dad last night.  Back pain is so miserable, isn't it!
