White Wednesday

White Petunias are the feature today for White Wednesday. Petunias tolerate the heat fairly well. They do not demand a lot of water.

They were beginning to get leggy so I cut every other branch back and they bloomed beautifully again.

Enjoy

That C-Cat crept into the last photo. He is a sly one.

I am linking with Kathleen at Faded Charm for her White Wednesday link party. Please visit for more white goodness.

  7. Your petunias look so pretty. I have a planter of petunias but they don't look as good as yours. I'm going to take your advice and cut them back to see if I can get them to bloom again. I'll let you know how it goes.

  8. So lovely!

    You have a sneaky kitty like mine. Mine's a big old attention hog, thinks the camera was invented solely to take her picture. ;-)

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  9. I have these in pink and purple-but I like the white. I can never have white around my house because they won't show up-my house is white. Glad something tolerates the heat! Happy WW

  11. How do you keep your petunias alive? They look lovely. And that sweet C-Cat ~ too cute (even if I only see his tail:) Happy WW!

  12. That's the great thing about petunias. When they get all leggy like that, you can cut them back and they bloom their little hearts out all summer! Isn't it funny how sometimes when we're taking a picture, we don't realize the cat or dog was in the shot until we upload them?!
    Happy WW!

    I love your flowers--and your kitty! That happened to me the other day...I needed a pic for a post and my precious cat got in the picture...I didn't know it until I put the pics on the computer...how funny!!! They're adorable, aren't they?
    Hugs from me,

  21. I didn't know that if I cut them they bloom again...I'm a totally clueless gardener as you can see!! I'll try that although I know mine will never be that gorgeous!!!

  25. Beautiful petunias! I bought several of these this year and almost all of them have died. Not sure what they didn't get. Yours are very romantic flowing out of your container. Thanks for stopping by.
