There’s no actual pink colour in today’s photo. But believe me when I say that (once again) I’m ‘tickled pink’ over something – my latest acquisition and my next entry in Becky’s ‘In the Pink’ Square in September photo challenge.
My photo looks somehow ‘unreal’, almost an ‘artists impression’, but I assure you, it isn’t.

With gorgeous, royal purple petals with varying white flecks, this petunia is a world first colour breakthrough that brings a cosmic wow factor to any garden. It is possibly the most unique, distinctive bloom I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Each bloom contains its own individual constellation – a perfect individual galaxy – and a perfect addition to my own private cosmos of colour, and just how these little solar systems turn out varies due to the growing conditions
Each flower features a one-of-a-kind pattern.
Apparently, perennial Petunias are quick to grow and establish and can be covered in flowers for months. I certainly hope I have the joy of viewing these delightful little starry, starry nights for weeks to come.
Scientifically known as Petunia cultivars, NightSky® is an original Selecta breeding. (U.S. Utility Patent Pending)

I saw photos of this amazing flower on Facebook some 12 or more months ago and knew I could have purchased seeds online from Amazon.
But I was reluctant to do that. I shouldn’t have been, however, that’s another story.
Where I found and subsequently purchased this plant is irrelevant. The fact is that I was browsing, and it must have been fate because I almost stepped up to the register to pay for the few seedlings I had selected and I would have arrived home none the wiser.
But something – a force of nature perhaps – made me keep browsing.
Something told me to walk to the end of another aisle, to turn that corner before heading back to the registers. And as I reached the end of the aisle, there this beauty was. Actually, there were probably 10 of them and I’m delighted one is now all mine.
I just hope I work out how to harvest the seeds should any form.
