Here is a portulaca in bloom.  In the upper right corner, one can see white alyssum.

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!
