Anyone who has followed my blog for even a
short time learns that I love Pelargoniums.
They may be considered an old fashioned flower
but there are so many varieties anymore to choose
from that there is a geranium color or variety
that will appeal to any gardener.
These two Rosebud varieties were brought into the house
to over winter for next year.
I took these two pictures right before they were given
a trimming for the winter.
I am trying to root some new starts from them in water, which does not work so well for me for some reason.
The stems usually just rot at my house in the water.
Since I am seeing no roots from the water method
I am now trying to start some in potting mix.
I am hoping to get some starts one way or another.
Since these have become my favorites of the geraniums
I went searching for some more of them online.
I ran across a website called Hobbs Farm and Greenhouse.
Well I may be an old gardener but not so old when it comes
to gardening so I was in shock at the varieties, variegations, scents, ivies, tricolor, bicolor, fancy leaves and colors of geraniums that Hobbs Farm had.
Now I am thinking seriously that I should not have done
a search about pelargoniums at all. I saw too many that I would like to have. This is not good. LOL!
Yesterday while the sun was shining so bright
I decided to get the Fall decorations out of the
yard and get up some Christmas decorations
while the weather was cooperating.
With a busy, wet week ahead it may be my
last chance to have gotten it done.
Not to mention that gun season for deer hunting
opened today so it may not be too safe to be
outdoor when you live near the forest. LOL!
Maybe I should rethink that hike my daughter
and I decided to take today also. LOL!
I do not have hunters orange to wear so maybe
bright red is the thing to wear on a hike today.
This is going to be a busy week coming up with the
‘ Christmas at Waynesville’ event coming up
Friday through Sunday December 3 – 5.
I am excited to go see all of the Christmas
decorations, antiques and crafts that will be
in the Waynesville shops.
Also this week I will be going to the Franklin Park
Conservatory in Columbus to see their Christmas displays.
So I see a couple of wonderful days filled with beautiful
Christmas displays and flowers for this week.
Everyone Have a Wonderful week and ….
