And some more petunias about to bloom very soon:

The humble petunia:  so much happiness in such a small, cheap, easy-to-grow package.

  1. Those are the biggest petunias I’ve ever seen. They are very frilly and cheerful, aren’t they? And you already know I think your view is amazing and so peaceful. We try and try to appreciate these things, right?

    • I saw that white petunia and I had to have it. That huge, glorious bloom. I stuck it in a bag with some other plants and walked 5k home with it, and though the bloom was a bit battered, it remained intact. The second bloom isn’t as big as the first, but it’s got like 4 or 5 more buds about to open, so we’ll see if it can outdo itself. 🙂
