This week I bought a few giant zinnas to add to my patio pots. And a few petunias as well. I needed something that LIKES the heat, right?
I got some purple and yellow petunias as well, and not until I got home did I read that these are considered LIME petunias. Who knew there was such a thing?!? (I sure didn't, but I really like 'em...)
I also went looking for Portulaca, one of my favorite hot summer flowers, to replace the pansies I planted last fall that finally withered away in our scotching hotspell. Portulaca has such bright happy colors, and with their succulent leaves seem to have a much better time surviving the hot weather once they get established:
And then I found THIS one -- a speckley, stripey geranium and well, I just couldn't resist getting it too:
Soooo.... guess what I'll be doing this weekend?
Happy Friday, Fellow Stitchers and I hope you enjoy your summertime weekend!
