Petunias

I was buying fruits at the Market! Market! when these beautiful blooms caught my eye.  I wonder how these petunias can bloom here so vigorously when the petunias I bought from this same flower shop died soon after I brought it home.  Is it the heat, or my black thumb?

So I stood there, admiring them for a little while, took some photos and left the market with spring in my steps and a smile.  Flowers have that effect on me.:p

Both are pretty displays and each have their own special appeal. (Know what you mean about the "black thumb"!) Thanks for sharing

joyful petunias; shame you lost yours; maybe overwatered?

Fruits and flowers capture our eyes in different ways. But like you, I just can't get my eyes off on flowers. They're beautiful! I didn't know the name Petunias but now. :)

Yes those colors are lovely, even its growth. I also bought the packets last year, the grow but did not look as beautiful as those. I know why ours are not lovely, because they are not treated well, at least they produced some flowers at home. I often go to Serendra as my friend is there, but i've not been inside Market market.

Lovely petunias both of them. We grow them here in the summers too but they'll end in the compostbing in the fall. Have a nice weekend.

Me too! I do better taking pictures of flowers than growing them ;>) They last longer that way.

Delightful flowers.

Aren't the pretty? Container plants are actually pretty hard to keep alive. If they dry out (and petunias love sun, so that's easy to happen) the roots have no where to reach for more water. They need careful care to thrive in such a limited place. Don't give up!

They definitely put a smile on my face! Lovely!

These are lovely! Thank you for sharing them with Today's Flowers. I apologize for being so late in commenting but we have had our family visiting and I have had little time on the computer. Wishing you a great week!
