Pretty pictures: Petunia cvv.

Petunia 'Burgundy Madness.' The color on this is as close as I could get it, but the real thing is considerably more impressive.

I get colds so infrequently that I'm always surprised, when I get one, at just how much they suck. I mean, I get a lot of sinus infections, and I think I have a touch of hay fever, and I'm accustomed to thinking of those as being more or less the same as a cold because some of the symptoms overlap, but colds are so much worse. Today's the second day I've called in sick to work, and presumably there will be people there who are upset with me over this. It's not a good time of year to be sick, a point which the boss hammered into me over and over again in the months leading up to spring (I think she even mentioned it at my interview.). But I really would be as useless there as I am if I stay home, so wev. (See sidebar for definition of "wev.")

Petunia 'Tidal Wave Pink'

Feel better soon!

Hay fever and working with plants - not good combination.

(Though, I suppose many won't actually be in flower when you are selling them?)

Sweet peas do for me. One sniff - and my head is flying off and my eyes are falling out with sneezes.

Such a shame.

They are one of the few flowers I don't mind en masse.

And they're loverly indoors too.

But all that's a long way off!

Feel better soon!

I like your blog and a "bit" of humor or is it tongue in cheek? Lovely colour of the petunias. They acutally do also well in my warm climate, so not over summer.
