Perky Little Petunia

Perky Little Petunia,

Here you are once again,
Blooming so prettily
in that silver can.

You gave us your beauty,
so many days last year.
Never again did I expect to see you,
Yet after winter you did appear.

Your hardiness has earned you,
a special focal spot
in my Spring garden,
for an Annual you are not!

(Written for Laura Jae’s little Petunia plant
who lived through the winter to bloom again this Spring!)
