In bloom!

I planted a lot of hanging baskets this spring and they are now beginning to bloom.  This is my favorite, portulaca or moss rose.  When I was growing up, my Grandma always had moss rose growing out of strawberry jars.  The multi-colored flowers would fill up the pockets and grow like crazy in the Texas summer heat.  Grandma was at my house for Easter dinner and noticed that I had moss rose planted, so for Mother’s Day, I planted her a big hanging basket full of moss rose.  Mine hadn’t bloomed out as of yesterday, but this morning, when I went out on the patio, my baskets had bloomed!  Hopefully my hanging baskets will look as good as Grandma’s moss rose filled strawberry jars looked when I was little.
