Purple Petunias

One of my most favorite paintings at the DeYoung museum in Golden Gate Park is "Petunias" by Georgia O'Keefe. Every time I visit the museum, it is the very first painting I go see (check it out here ). The simple velvety texture of the purple flower petals is exquisite.

So, in honor Georgia O'Keefe I plant purple petunias.

I love purple petunias.

That's my fav of Georgia O'Keefe's too! I used to have a print of the painting in an old apartment. Still love it!

Keep posting pictures of the garden!
