Rescue Petunias

Sometimes in July petunias look spent.  That was the case with a
neighbor's hanging basket of petunias.  All the blooms were gone,
and the neighbor set the basket by his garbage can on the road.  I
noticed there was a little green still left on it and I couldn't stop
thinking about the poor plant.  So, we asked the neighbor if we
could try to rescue the hanging basket and he gave us the basket.
DH carefully trimmed it back and nurtured it with Miracle Grow
and LOTS of water.  That was two weeks ago. 
Look how beautiful it is now!
It's funny how attached you can get to rescue plants!


  1. Isn't it fun to rescue plants? Great job!

  2. Great job!!! I need to do a little TLC to my petunias -- they are looking a bit sad!

  3. Hi Lottie!
    Thanks for visiting my blog!
    I usually have no luck with petunias but you and your husband did a wonderful job rescuing these. I love their purple color!
