Sometimes people write a comment about my various flower shares to say that one or another reminds them of their mothers. For me, Petunias will do it every time. When I was a child living in the town of Mount Royal, a bed with petunias lined our short drive and I seem to remember my mother tending them. She must have loved them as they are the only flower I remember from my childhood. So today’s flower, in the garden bed of a friend (thanks J) is a memory of my own mother. Maybe it was the flower of the times, in the mid 1950’s in Canada? I have a feeling that hers were that lovely striped variety I have shared here. In any case, if this flower brings back happy memories of your mother or anyone else, or even a happy time, then I will be content. Have a lovely day friends. We have sun and heat here. A Flower a Day #265 (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers I post, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.)
