I think it was beginning of this year, in the month of January that I received 4 pots of petunia plants from my friend. They were of different colours and I transferred them into hanging pots. Below the hanging pots were some other plants also growing in pots.
The plants grew and I enjoyed their beautiful flowers for about 5 months. Later they dried up and they were gone from my garden.
One day, I noticed 2 baby plants growing from the flower pot that was used for growing the petunia plants and which I have put aside.
As they grew bigger, only then I recognized the leaves as those of petunia plants.
And I also noticed some baby petunia plants growing from the pot which was below the place where I hung the petunia plants. They were all self-seeded and were growing well.
It was such a pleasant surprise to see the plants growing from the seeds that have fallen onto the soil in these pots. And all the plants were of this colour only, the velvety purple flowers.
I was once again blessed with these beautiful petunia flowers blooming in my garden. It was so unexpected to see the plants growing and blooming again in my garden.
A close up of the velvety purple petunia flower. Isn't it a beauty?
The sad thing is that these plants are easily attacked by the mealy bugs.
This round I only get to enjoy their blooms for about 3 months before they too dried up and died. I don't know whether they have left behind any seeds to grow again in my garden.
Linking to Flower Wednesday.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness
and praise spring up before all nations.
(Isaiah 61:11, The Living Bible-TLB)
