Our Petunias

I love the word/name Petunia and loved the Petunia stories as a kid. I'm developing my green fingers and this year went crazy with planting petunia seedlings in our brick trough in the front. They are so happy looking and make me smile :-)

Thanks for the comment Doris. They're a bit thin on the ground at the moment, unlike your petunias.

Very Pretty!
Reminds me of all the little pots that came home from school for many a Mother's Day gift.

Aww Milt, I shall have to see if I can don my superwoman costume and high-tail over to you too and flood your comments.... but you know, it's quality not quantity so maybe I should spare you!

MrsDof - I don't know where my kids where... I never got such treats but sounds very nice. All those proudly decorated pots... reminds me of a scene from Desperate Housewives where the mum finally receives a pot to be proud of and then finds out the kids have only nicked it from the neighbour's patio and still had the price tag underneath!

My gradmother had a friend named Petunia, for many years I thought the flower was named after her. Each year I buy a flat of white petunia (my entire garden is white) and think of her as I plant them.

Yes, I too like them very much. Lovely picture!

Michele - it's great to spread the joy and I bet youhave a smile on your face too rembering your grandmother and her firend.... :-) A white garden sounds lovely. I'm too early into learning about gardening to become quite so artistic. It's enough at the moment that the plants and flowers live! :-)

Jane, LOL. A pot bellied pig called Cheetah is sometimes called Petunia?! Sounds like fun in the jungle over your way!

I like petunias too. The always remind me of the Larkin Twins in The Darling Buds Of May (by H E Bates), who were called Zinnia & Petunia. Have a good weekend!
