petunia© 2013 Michael Fiveson

I see so many beautiful flower posts and I completely get the attraction. It really is breathtaking to see the variety, and all the talented photographers who capture them so well. This is my own contribution, and my lovely wife tells me it’s a Petunia.

  1. It’s really fun to look at a flower close up. Amazing works of art from the Creator! BTW, I was in Greeley a few weeks ago. Always like to visit there. I’ll be back in a month or two.


  2. Pretty petunia! I wish I had a nickle, as they say. I pinched off more dead blossoms than anybody ought to have. My mother loved petunias and had lots of them every year. If you pinch off the blossom at the stem, the plant will bunch out and make lots more foliage and flowers. Believe me, it will! 🙂 If the plant gets “leggy”, simply pinch it back and it will bunch out (as my mother used to describe it).


    • Judy has also been pinching off petunias for many years. Me, I pinch off some skoal. Nah, just kidding. But I will pinch her with some regularity, making me the beast that I am.
