Reseeding

On occasion some of my annual plants are so wonderful with their seeding process to produce seeds that come back the next year. That feature makes this gardener do a happy dance in the yard. So if you drive by and see me doing some wild movements with a trowel in hand that is what is happening...not that I have ants in my .....!

100_1758 This beautiful petunia has come back two years in a row now. The plant does not get very large and does not bloom until late July or early part of August.

Truly an blessing!

I'll do a dance with you, because my petunia has come back for a couple years, too. She is so hardy to survive our winters!

Hi Amelia, Volunteer plants are such unexpected little blessings! My next door neighbor used to have petunias sprout like that from year to year! Very pretty! No wonder you are doing the HAPPY DANCE! :)

Thanks for the "Welcome Back to Blogland!" Missed you! ~Hugs, Rhonda

Hi again Amelia! I just realized while leaving a comment on Darlene's blog that Ashley (my daughter) was signed into my computer under her blog, so the comment from "Ashley" above is from me. Sorry for the confusion! :) ~Rhonda

Love the Petunia!

I love your arrangement with your "painters". :) What a great idea.

I think you should paint that bookshelf black so your white pieces will really stand out. :) OR paint it white and use scrapbook paper on the back of the shelf to make them stand out. :)

I have never used fried fish with the tacos but I bet it would be good too. I have only used Talapia and done it grilled in aluminum foil packets with some seasoning or on the Big Green Egg smoker.

Always such a treat to see flowers reappear another year. Dance away! : )

Hi Amelia! I'd be doing a happy dance too. :) I just noticed an impatient growing in my front flower bed that came up from seeds. That's always a bonus to me.

I have never had a petunia reseed! Lots of Johnny jump ups have reseeded for me this year. I tried to grow petunias from seed....hmmmm not too successful, so I just love yours.
