My geraniums bloomed while I was away this week! I love the petals and the pink. I purchased this during our cold and damp spring when I visited a greenhouse in nearby Portage. I love greenhouses in the winter and spring for their warmth and the wonderful smell of earth. Anyway. My mother's parents always had a geranium "tree" that lived near Grandpa's chair and, walking through the greenhouse, I was struck with an idea. I could start my own geranium tree. So, home it came. It started out living in my studio because it is sunny there in the late afternoon. However, it wasn't thriving there. Finally, the sun room warmed up and I moved it and my poor hoya out there. (The hoya's story is a whole other post.) It is still in a small pot and I haven't given any thought to "training" it up, rather than out.
But, I do like the thought of having a geranium tree in my home. Even if it is going to have to move back to my studio for the cold months.
Travel was good this week. Work was very busy and is challenging me enough to be interesting and a stretch but not enough to turn me into a turnip.
Wilson and I are vacationing as of today! Woooo whoooo! Today we attend our youngest nephew's birthday party for pizza and cake. Then tomorrow we head up to Grand Marais, Michigan. The house/cat(s) sitter is all lined up for what will be a short time away but it will be relaxing and a way to decompress. More later but now I have to jump in the shower!
