Wave Petunia....

I wanted to post this morning and tell you why I haven't posted. :-) One of my grandsons (Ryan) has been with me for a week. The week before that was full of Dr's appointments and such. It's been a busy summer. Keeping the grass mowed has been a full time job because of all the rain. My garden consisted of two tomato plants and three cucumber plants but that was enough to keep us supplied. I did have a garden across the road from me. My sweet neighbor that always had a garden passed away a year ago and her son put out her garden and told me it was mine. I have had some good things out of that garden. I thought that was so sweet. It feels like fall here this morning. The air is so crisp and cool. I think I am ready! The fair open this week. My friend Carolyn and I will be going on Thursday. That is senior day. I will let you know how that goes! The wave petunia above is on my front porch.

I am glad you had one of the boys with you!!! Your petunia is gorgeous. Do you feed it with anything? I have wave petunias in that old wringer washer out front. They never get that big.

Your petunia is beautiful. I think it has been a busy summer for us all and it seemed to fly by so fast. It is crisp and cool here this morning. I have my windows open to air out the house. The fair started here last week. I had TW over the weekend and he had the croup Sat.night. Scared me to death. We were up all night. Is that a snowball bush by your porch? That is the only name I know for it because my mother had them all across the front of the house when we were growing up. Everytime I see one, it brings back memories of my childhood.

Your petunias are lovely. It's so good to hear of fall in the air. Perhaps it will eventually make its way down here to Florida.

Your petunias are so pretty, Clara. I have petunias in my front porch flower boxes, but they look mighty raggedy. You've got to tell me your secret! :-)

I definitely understand what you're saying about the mowing. Between our garden and my flowers and mowing and weed whacking, I've not had much time to tend my poor blog this summer.

How nice to have a garden you can claim for your own. The petunia is beautiful and I know you must enjoy it. I've missed you but I know that summer is terribly busy for everyone. Glad to see you back blogging again.
