The business end of the kitchen is a professional-grade gas range with stainless-steel finish. The stove is topped with a matching stainless-steel range hood, and a pot filler faucet extends out from the back wall, making it easy to put some water on to boil and cook up some fresh shrimp or lobster. Other appliances include a large microwave mounted below the counter and a stainless-steel dishwasher.

Best Summer Bulbs for Containers: Canna lilies are tropical plants with big, shiny leaves and brightly-colored, orchid-like flowers that attract hummingbirds. Cannas are excellent container plants. You can give them their own container, or combine them with other annuals or summer bulbs. With their impressive size and decorative foliage, cannas can add a tropical look to patios, decks, entryways, water gardens and pool areas.
