Lovely combination! I had a package of very old Balcony petunia seed I had purchased from Select Seeds, so this year I planted the whole package, hoping to get a few plants. ONE seed germinated, so I am happy I can now save the seed for next year. I love the habit and scent of the old petunias ever so much more than the huge floppy hybrids.

The hanging basket and Clematis looks gorgeous together!

Caren I have an important question for you. 2 years or so back you had asked me to join garden voices which I did and you asked me to give my blog feed free so that you could subscribe to my blog Carolsgarden.blogspot.com and to see when I have blogged something new. I did know nothing about feed at that time and did exactly what you told me to do. The problem I have now is that people keep telling me that they can't subscribe to my blog feed, although I set my blog on showing full feed. I dunno what's wrong and why they can't subscribe. I tried to add my blog to Google reader and it says that I have no excisting feed. So what can I do now? Do you have any suggestions or can you explain me again what it was that I did when you told me to open my blog feeds for you?

I'd be very thankful for your help!

Best wishes from Germany sends Carola
