This is a plant from free as advertised in the Daily Mail . it is a petunia and it complements the coleus really well .
My plants are slow , first the weather was cold , then we had too much rain , this weekend we have had blistering heat . Far too diverse weather conditions for my little plants.

I did have a lovely 3 days though over the weekend . Silver sewer came Friday .with presents of Hosta plants and 3 beautiful butterflies  she had done on her super duper embridery machine . We had a pleasant time .
On Saturday  bluebell called and off we went to the hairdressers .
Sunday is usually  gardening for me but it was too hot to do  much so, I decided to get out on my front garden 7,30 am to trim the cerasteum , some call it snow on the mountain . I could have had the job done and swept clean in 1/2 hour but people taking their dogs for an early morning walk stopped to chat but I musn;t complain  ,it's always pleasant to chat .
In the afternoon I just lazed  , feeling very snoozy but ding dong !! a neighbour called bringing me a large potted grass plant she didn't want any more because her dog took to chewing it .It was rather pot bound so it came out of it's pot to be trimmed , a little fresh soil and a good watering . It looks more lively today . he also bought some mag azines for me , knitting magazines
I must say the roses are good this year . no complaints there.
My new fish are happy and settled in their pond so all seems well .
Bluebell and I went grocery shopping as usual today. We called at the Age concern charity shop  to drop bits off but oh dear ! , there were some things I just could not leave on the shelf , namely a jug and bowl ,cream with violets on, a china cup and saucer with my birth month , and 3 very nice plant pots  
for sitting plants in .
Then off to do the grocery shopping .I did buy new place mats and coasters and 2 new cooking pans  , also 2 new water glasses , blue .   I don't plan on any more shopping this week.

A very pretty Petunia, my Granny used to have snow on the mountains in her garden, she planted bright coloured annuals through it to set them off and make a little go a long way.

Love the pretty colours of the petunia. Sounds like you have had a lovely time, glad the weather has improved. Here in the depths of winter we have had 19c, now of course they say we will get more snow, roll on Spring I say.

What an unusual petunia, very colourful and will look good mixed with other plants.

Love the colours of the petunia. My DIL has black petunia's, I like those too.
We are having more rain than we usually do at this time of the year, it's hot too, so air is very heavy with the humidity.
