Portulaca or moss rose, which I grow in front of my house bordering the sidewalk, is one of my favorite flowers. I love watching the little buds grow. I love looking at the flowers in the middle of the day to see which one is in full bloom. They don’t need a lot of care, just weeding around them and sunlight.
Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz!

Wonderful flower, one of my favorites also, so easy to take care of.
I also love purtulaca very much! I had some on my window last summer! Thanks for sharing!
I have some portulaca in my yard. It’s the easiest thing I’ve ever grown. Just break a piece off and stick it in dirt and it grows. I love the different colors you have!
Hi, are beautiful and varied colors, you call them eleven hours, to open the flowers around this time, when the sun is intense. Great contribution.
Thanks for sharing.

It’s been a while since I visited, I had a couple of real hectic days, and a couple more to come, so …
I love the artwork you made, wonderful, beautiful!
You are so gifted!
Leora: I love this flower and the colors are really pleasing. I planted these last year but only one survived the Winter. I still love the one.
They are really beautiful.
I could swear that would be roses. The button is the same.
Given their request, I made a small change in my text, to facilitate Google Translator.
Your Portulaca flowers are beautiful. I used to grow them a lot but have not had them for a decade or more. I don’t know why as they were always special for me.
Your photographs are really a good ones. I have enjoyed my visit here today.

I like these tough little beauties as well! They seem to thrive in places where other flowers can’t. The closeup really shows how lovely the flower is.
These are lovely flowers. You must have a lovely garden.
I love the word — Por-tu-la-ca. It sounds like some romantic Spanish couple’s dance.

GORGEOUS! I love this segment. I look forward to it.
Elsewhere in NJ. Re: Portulaca. What do you do with it in the winter? Is it an annual? Does it seed itself and come up again in the spring. I have some in a pot that just got frozen. I brought the pot inside to thaw it out and now I don’t know what to do with it all winter.
Lorraine, you saved some in a pot? I have no idea if it will survive the winter in the house. Yes, it’s definitely an annual, likes it hot, not cool. I find in June I get new seedlings from last years’ flowers that spread their seeds. Look carefully in the spot next spring.
I’ve heard of impatiens surviving as a houseplant.
