This is a tiny piece of a garden geranium* I ...uh...borrowed from the planters outside of Justin's work training program down in town. They were just going to die out there...really they were! The frost was coming and well...that was also when I pilfered a considerable amount of other plants, some of which I managed to keep alive all this time... since October, I think.
I didn't have much experience with this plant, having never grown it. I know that is very strange as it is one of the most popular and common annuals and are often grown indoors as houseplants. They are pretty and showy when in bloom and I had heard they root well, but I never imagined they would take so easily. I just poked a hole in a pot on the window sill...I was trying to root other things in it, don't quite recall now what they were. All I know is I was almost positive they would root and I wasn't at all thinking the geranium would. Well, they all died and the geranium? Well, just look at it! It's pretty as can be and I paid it scant attention.
|The garden geranium isn't really a geranium|
New discovers are fun and in winter time most welcome.
* Here is where I should tell you that this really isn't a geranium.But I'll tell you about that next time.
