Geraniums! Geraniums! Geraniums!

These geraniums outside our kitchen window are still blooming. You may think, what’s up with Virginia making a fuss about a pot of geraniums?

Geraniums doing their blooming thing on a rainy day

My brother Dwight planted these geraniums in early April. Picking them up at an outdoor pop-up garden center was one of our first outings during the initial stages of the COVID-19 quarantine.

Six months later they are still blooming!

Every year we enjoy geraniums in this spot, but I never remember them lasting this long. A sign of hope, methinks.

grace, peace & HOPE

Virginia : )

p.s. Hope everyone enjoyed the week of post-a-day Image Quotes. I usually create those for Instagram (using pics from my iPhone photo stream) but it was fun putting them up here for a change. Hmmn, maybe something for Virginia to consider on a regular basis?

    My red geraniums are still blooming, too! I’m considering bringing them inside to over-winter. Sometimes that works nicely; other times, they get all leggy. Glad yours are still bringing smiles, Virginia!

      So glad your geraniums are still blooming, Debbie. It’s a bit of a surprise here as usually they’re toast by August (given the heat.) We’ve never tried bringing them in. hmmn, something to consider. We bring in my brother’s huge bayleaf tree (it takes up a big space near our kitchen table, almost like it has a seat!) Blessings – VA 🙂

      Aren’t geraniums happy flowers, Patty? We especially liked the color of these geraniums this year (usually we find peach colors, but these just said, “be happy” during the initial COVID challenges…) Blessings, Patty! 🙂
