Petunia Patch

So many of my Flower a Day photographs have reminded my viewers of their mothers and perhaps this will resonate in the same way. My mother had these planted along the drive when I was a child, so I always think of her when I see them. I have never grown them myself, so was pleased to see this display in a friend’s garden in July, spilling over with little petunia flowers of different colours. I hope you all enjoy this petunia patch, today’s post to cheer. This is specially for all going through a tough time.

  1. This could be wallpaper adorning some lady’s boudoir, so lovely is it. Petunias also play a part in my childhood and also because of my mother. She had a bed of petunias in the backyard and all summer long,, there would be a posy of petunias on the dining table, whether in the dining room proper or more casually at our sunporch eatery. Unlike these petunias, my mother’s were the multi-coloured ones, with the little faces hidden in their petai design. I loved looking at those little faces while munching watermelon and drinking iced tea – the very essence of my memories of delightful childhood summers in Montreal. Thank you, Ellie, for warming the cockels of my heart with these petunia prompts.

    1. As I read that comment, I was transported back to your house in Montreal. It was such a wonderful memory of those days. If my photograph lifted your heart with thoughts of those times, your words lifted mine. Thank you.
