Key Requirements for Higher Google Page Rank

Since readers have continued to be curious about Google Page Rank (GPR), I decided to take up an assignment for myself and write GPR Part I...

Doubledecker Zinnia Varieties Pink Orange

Some of the best things in life is...almost free. Introducing the Double Decker flowers I purchased in seed form for $.25. They were the easiest to grow, I just dropped the seeds in my Dragon Fruit shrub pot and it grew in no time. I had some pictures of these flowers in the Your Paradigm is Your Choice post. It was when I didn't know that these flowers regenerate after the first layer wilted, until one day I left them to wilt on the stalk a bit too long... The wonderful surprise that had taken me one morning, these flower grew another layer on top of the wilted one.



Thanks for stopping by today.

  5. The first time I discovered dragon fruit was on the airplane (Cathay Pacific) flight from Rome. I was like "Oh my god, white kiwi!!!!" hahahahah! It was really yummy! And since my trip to Europe, I have been buying dragon fruit at the grocery whenever I go. :) And you just have a tree? What in the world, woman?? You grow purple potatoes and dragons in your tree?? haha! And not to mention you go camping! :) We should hang out! :)

  20. Those are new to me. I've seen flwering plants that bloom more than once a season but "doubles" that bloom on top of an old blossom, wow! And for that price seed packet, you sure can't go wrong, can you?

  30. @C Anytime you want to hang-out, though I must warn you that I am always doing something. It could drive a person a bit tire. I have a dragon fruit shrub...It is just beginning to sprout, but hasn't had any fruits yet. It is still a baby.

  34. @EwaWhen I bought this bag of flowers, my mother gave me such a hard time. She didn't like that I am spending money on...seeds? But man, if she could only see them now.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @betchaiI hope they will regenerate for you. I think you need the double decker type otherwise, they are just single layers.
