Blooming Petunias To Welcome Chinese New Year 2016.

Hello, I am back!

Sorry, I have been MIA (missing in action) for a few days because my internet was suddenly disconnected while I was half way preparing my blog post on Friday morning. Anyway, I am glad that finally my internet is connected once again.

Today is Chinese New Year eve and we have just finished our Reunion dinner. I am happy and eager to put up this post to welcome the CNY 2016 and also to wish everyone who is celebrating CNY, "A Blessed Chinese New Year 2016!"
 Once again I want to thank my friends for blessing me with these petunias.
I received these 4 pots of petunias last year December.
Praise the Lord, the plants have been with me for more than 2 months now. Looks like they have adapted well to the new environment and they are now doing very well.
It is so amazing that all these flowers are from one single plant! 
Purple Shamrock and Orange/Reddish Pink Petunias.
The purple petunias come in many shades. 
Deep or dark purple, smaller sized petunias on upper standing rack.
Begonia plant on the lower standing rack.
All the petunias are now blooming abundantly and beautifully.
The flowers are in bright deep orange and mixed with other shades.
I water them once a day. 
 I feed them fertilizer once in every 2 weeks.
It is a joy to be greeted by these petunias every morning.
 To all my blogging friends, I will try to visit your blog as soon as possible.

'May the Lord bless and protect you;

may the Lord's face radiate with joy because of you;

may He be gracious to you, show you His favor,

and give you His peace.'

(Numbers 6:24-26, TLB)

  5. Your Petunias are beautiful and healthy. It's a lot of work keeping them on hanging pots when it's hot. I start mine from seeds every Spring and they bloom till frost in the late Fall.

    Enjoy Chinese New Year tomorrow.
    Hugs,
    JB
