I’m a Lonely Little Petunia in an Onion Patch


My mom used to sing this little song to us kids when we were little “I’m a Lonely Little Petunia in an Onion Patch”. The song came out in 1946 by Johnny Kimano, Billy Faber, and Maurie Hartmann. You can listen to a version HERE by Arthur Godfrey.

I thought of this song the other day when my beau and I took a walk around a nearby town, and we saw pots of petunias peppered around. As winter works toward its end and spring gets ready, here are a few pots of petunias getting a jump start on springtime:

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.
