I love petunias!  This year I planted the flower beds in front of my porch in dozens of petunias, in every color.  The smell is so sweet!  And petunias seem to thrive on neglect.  Every year it seems the growers come up with new varieties.  The top two (shown above) I bought at Pine Hill.  The bottom one I picked out of a flower box in front of a store in Charlevoix.  And yes, I asked first.  
Stay tuned for more petunia paintings!
