There were a lot of canna in the garden of my parent's house.
All of them were red flowers.
When I was a child, they were so tall for me and flowers were big.
I don't have a garden to plant flowers.
One day I saw small potted canna at a flower shop and I bought them.
Though they were small plant of about 30 centimeters, they already had some buds.
Now they are blooming and they make me recall my childhood.
