Back in October I wrote about the unexpected success in growing a potted petunia in the house. I imagined photographing white blossoms against the kitchen window with snow falling in the background. Will that come to pass? Well, recently after cutting away all the dead and dying pieces only one green stem remained on the petunia plant. Nothing else. I considered letting it go, but what harm was there in continuing to water that stem. And then one day it bloomed. A single bloom on a single stem on a mostly barren patch of ground. I guess there must be some good roots beneath that soil.
