Friend to sun~
and heat alike.

Giving show with~
displaying power.

Thank you Lord~
for this, my flower.

Taking a walk through my garden today, I am so thankful for the pretty Purslane that seems to thrive in our Texas heat. It is a planting that I add every year to fill in the spaces among my other loved flowers. Tolerant to our very HOT temps and always giving a beautiful show of small colorful blooms. Planted in the ground, a garden pot, or hanging from the porch, these wonderful annuals are a blessing and look so pretty next to other flowers and especially,roses.

Sharing a few pics of the purslane from my garden this season.
