Summer Flowers for a cold January

Another watercolor of flowers seen last summer.  These petunias were hanging on the fence around Rita's deck in Sibley's Cove Newfoundland.  With the sun shining on them they looked like velvet glowing on the post.   I spent yesterday afternoon here on the island pulling out all the flowers and other plants that were zapped by a hard freeze last week.  The cheerful look of these petunias has got me thinking of all the new possibilities for the replanting this spring.
