I was quite vilely ill this morning, so called in sick to work. As I felt better in the afternoon, I treated my illness with garden therapy. I went outside and sat on my deck, felt the refreshing air, and just looked at the beautiful flowers.
I felt like there was some pruning I should do, but because it was a sick day I was exempt from labor, so I just sat and relaxed.
Naturally, I had the company of my faithful companion.
Aren't these "black velvet" petunias gorgeous?
Here's a close-up of the blooms, that I took last week.
I do feel better, and I'm certain the flowers helped.
