While I didn’t have a plethora of plants this year, there were a few that are already doing quite nicely inside.
I love petunias and I hope I can keep this plant alive long enough to plant it outside again next spring.
In the meantime, I plan to enjoy this pretty purple petunia on my back porch. There are actually a couple of plants that are blooming, so the odds are pretty good that I’ll have petunias next year.
That just makes me happy.
I grew these in a pot on the deck where they did so much better than they ever did in the ground. I need some major soil amendments to be able to grow any flowers in what I hope will one day be a perennial garden.
I’ve always thought the purple coneflower was the perfect flower with its simplistic form and perfect color—my absolute favorite.
I hope to be treated with hot peppers all winter long.
Then last but not least of my noteworthy selections, is the Serrano Pepper plant that is still producing. I wasn’t going to leave that outside to die. So I brought it in as I have done in the past.
