Moss Rose





Moss Rose or Portulaca grandiflora
is another easy growing, low maintenance flower.





Each bloom produces hundreds of seeds.







In little capsules.






That you can save for next year.







But sometimes, it just can't wait....





'til....next year.



These babies, will not probably not bloom before frost.

Yes, you've got to appreciate the plant that blooms through the worst of summer's sun and heat, and actually thrives if you forget to water it for days!

Love moss roses! They're so hard to kill and they don't mind the heat - so they're always welcome in my garden. Lovely pics, Jenni.

I got out of practice checking in with you while you were away, and then I was. But now I'm back in the loop, and so glad to be here! Your pictures make almost not hate gardening -- as long as someone else is doing it!

So pretty! Just reminds me that mother nature is starting to go into quiet mode when looking at those seeds.

Seriously, where did the year go?

I've got a crush on that picture of the pods w/ the seeds and I keep coming back to it. Any chance you'd email it to me so I can crop it and print it out? Pretty please?
