Pansies and Petunias: a continuing discussion
July 19, 2016 10:48pm CST
For the life of me, I can't remember the difference between the two. I like flowers a lot and Anne plants plenty of both along with roses and many more. She even gave me this hint, "Pansies have faces, Petunias don't. Simple, right? Not for me. Even as I write this, I have to check to see if I am getting it right. Okay, is this a a guy thing or one of those dreaded "age" things. Nahhhh, no way. I just don't pay enough attention. Anyway, I am determined that by summer's end I will get these flowers straight once and for all. Photo is mine Maybe a photo of each one taped to my screen would help. I am sure that most of you know the difference between the two. Any help for an old guy confused about flowers?

It's just their names that are similar and yes, confusing- but you will get it- I have to stop when people say 'Petunias' though and conjure up the flower in my mind for some reason as I always forget which one it is. hahaha!
