I'm Just Mad About Saffron

Photobucket

I have no idea what type of portulaca this is. I thought maybe Summer Joy, but with its beautiful orange center, I'm not so sure. I found the plant on the front porch when we moved in. It was looking pretty scraggly, so I gave it some water. Portulaca is very drought resistant, you know. I felt sorry for it, so I kept it and it's now fraternizing with my other plants out on the front porch. You should hear them at night out there, whooping it up!
Also, while looking up the Donovan lyrics for the title post (not that I needed to, mind you), I came across this cute little blogger who has an Etsy shop. I'm all about the sharing.
