My petunias are the only flowering plant, besides our hibiscus bushes, that I seem to have much luck with, knock on wood…these are flourishing nicely, and I am trying to treat them well…

Let’s see if I can keep these alive…I’ve already killed several other species…vincas, geraniums, plumerias, marigolds…I’m starting to feel like the Dr. Mengele of the gardening world, and I’m afraid my gnomes are going to abandon me if I can’t keep some kind of flora alive…!

When you have done your best for a flower, and it fails, you have some reason to be aggrieved.  ~Frank Swinnerton
