Good year no snails
Stripes dizzy the eye
I used to grow Petunias religiously. Loved the various colors. Now, it’s all about things we can eat, but I do miss the colors. Thanks for sharing yours with me.

Petunias are from the nightshade family and not for eating, but there are a lot of flowers that can be eaten. Nasturtiums are yummy and peppery. I know that they sell them in salad packs in posh supermarkets and delis in the UK for quite a price, so that might be something you could grow and sell at farmers’ markets.
Here’s an article about flowers that can be eaten, if you’ve interested. http://www.burpee.com/gardenadvicecenter/annuals/general-gardening/edible-flowers/article10892.html
They look like some kind of strange humbug, vibrant and cheery.
They do look like humbugs, don’t they? I used to love those huge glass jars in sweet shops that were filled with assorted humbugs.
I had to look up humbug! And yes, they do look like them! Pretty and deliciously colourful!
I’m salivating at all this talk of humbugs, but then I think about the cost to my teeth and that sits on any sweet temptation. I’ll stick to petunia-gazing instead 😉
Great idea! 😉
Beautiful stripes too xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I like to think that the pixies painted on those stripes when nobody was looking, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Well thing I don’t like petunias. But see these stipey ones? I’d sell my soul. They are gorgeous x
So beautiful! Each year, I typically plant purple and pink ones. I love them. But these striped ones are wonderful! 🙂
They are wonderful, and seem to go on forever. So far, it’s been two months of continuous flowering, with many more blooms on the way 🙂 I buy them every year, although this is the first time I’ve found any yellow-striped maroon ones!
