Spring petunia

roze

I have just bought new pink and violet petunias, and will create my own hanging baskets. I planted, watered the plants, and made photos to admire gorgeous colors. Petunia is an irresistible mix of pretty and provocative. The newer types of petunias are much more colorful and they have a good smell, but it doesn’t seem to be as strong as the old fashions.

Old fashion petunias have the most wonderful, tender sweet scent. My mother’s yard was full of them, I collected seeds from her flowers and am still growing her petunias, this petunia has intensely night-scented, large white flowers.
The smell makes me smile, smells like nostalgia, a bittersweet longing.. While all the senses are connected with memories, smell in particular sparks a flurry of emotional memories.
