For the past month we have looked and looked at some of the prettiest flowers I've ever seen. Then I fall back to the flower I absolutely hated growing up. Petunias. Don't ask me why, but I hated them. Now I love them. I hope I can continue to make them look like the photo above. The pink is very showy too!

This is my big project for the summer. I purchased the tall, greenery at a Mennonite greenhouse for very little cost. I had some other flowers already at home without pots, so I put them all together. Hopefully this Missouri humidity and a little love will produce wonderful blooms for us this summer.

That is so funny because my Mom always planted petunias so I never wanted any. Now I look at them and think...maybe. Still haven't gotten them for myself. Maybe this is the year?? They really are gorgeous flowers.

I've never had luck with petunias but yours sure are pretty. Love the pink!

Hey, I grew up about 20 miles from Macon, MO. Now I live in KS, but I don't miss the MO humidity. Petunias like plenty of sun by the way.

I hope you are doing well.
Pink flowers are still my favorite. I don't have any petunias this year. I should.
