Today's Flowers # 41

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 4 GMT is the post time.

My wife and I went out to the local farmer's market and got some vegetable plants and hanging baskets for the front porch. The plants are a Pink Double Petunia and are quite full. I did a little dead heading and they are looking super. Did you notice the photographer in the window?
The pair of baskets adorn our front porch. The hostas are really putting on a show on the North side of the house. Some on the other side got burnt from two frosts last week.
This flower has some beautiful blooms.
The doubled up bloom makes this really special.
Check above to see some other great flower photos.
