Yellow Petunias

I don't have any yellow petunias in my garden, but my magentas have surived the worst of this heat and drought. For the longest time, I associated petunias with old-fashioned gardens, and I suppose they have been a long, frequently used flower. I've really grown to admire their strength, beauty and ability to withstand and survive so many of summer's challenges.

We're expecting a cool front today with temps in the high 80s, low 90s, and after temperatures in the 100s, it should feel fantastic!

Hope your weather is good for you -- and your day delightful!

Wow; the yellow ones just pop from the darker ones in the background. Petunias have always been a standard summer plant here too -- but usually only in shades of pinks and light violet. They are hardy! Your painting and tribute are lovely!

A bit cooler here too today after an early morning storm yesterday. What a relief. Off to the farmer's market for tomatoes and cucumbers!

Hugs,
Lorraine
