one rogue petunia ready to blossom

i live on an island

where the main challenge to having a flower garden

is negotiating with the deer

who seem to think flowers are planted to supplement their diet.

A couple of years ago

after 3 years of participating in the deer-challenge

i decided to concede

and turn to other pursuits.

imagine my surprise yesterday

when i walked by an abandoned planter

and saw one rogue petunia ready to blossom

rebirth !!!!

    today sept 7 i add an update …..
    she bloomed a beautiful medium pink color
    and went on to become a complete plant
    yesterday boasting 7/8 fully opened blooms
    and several more blooms waiting in the wings
    i’m sorry to report that overnight she disappeared
    guess the deer felt she was ready to eat
    r.i.p dear rogue petunia
    thank you for coming into my life when you did
