In case you missed this post, you can see the impatiens story here.
I have been using begonias to fill in for the last two years, but it's just not the same. Begonias are beautiful; in fact, their foliage is more showy than impatiens' leaves. But I want tons of flowers, man!
So as my begonias try their best to become a bounteous eye-feast in my deck planters, I captured a sight that warmed my heart just a little.
A lone impatien refusing to succumb to disease. It was a volunteer from last year that popped up halfway through this year's growing season, surpassing the begonias by several inches.
I love impatiens. Come back soon, you hear?
Love your friend,
