A Sucker for Survivors

by Kay~Kacey on 6/30/2010

I am such a sucker for survivors. Like this pretty cracked milk glass piece…with its tiny crack.


Like these tiny portulaca plants and petunias. They are annuals here in the midwest. But they determinedly¬† sprouted up this year. The weird thing? The portulaca were from TWO summers ago!!¬† In a hanging planter on the balcony rail that I wanted SuperGuy to tear down and get rid of. But I couldn’t stand to lose these spunky plants. So I dug them up and put them in a few pots in the backyard. Didn’t really think they’d make it.


But look! they are going to bloom! Wonder if they’ll come back again next year? I guess they didn’t read the gardening book on how they are annuals in our climate. Will get pretty macro shots of the blooms soon. :love:

Drop by tomorrow, I’ll actually have some photos of ME at the wedding. Who knew?? :rofl:

Came here for the survivor post title. And well, I come here anyway but the title caught my eye! Spunky little plant you’ve got there. They’re going to make a great photo debut. Hey ~ they already have!
