From the Dust

My favorite geranium plant was given to my by my granny. Velvety soft and delicately pink. The spicy scent reminding me of my grandma's patio as a little girl. I had it for so long, it grew hearty. Then after moving to a new town, it became unhappy. Slowly thinning out. Finally, it was just a mere outline of a plant and weeds overtook it. Quite a few months later, on the other side of my walkway I noticed a piece of the plant I had thrown into the shrubbery. A new vibrant scarlet red bloom reaching through the ground cover. Growing from it's old dead branch. A hanger on determined not to give up. Growing back more bright and alive than ever.

  7. This geranium plant will live for as long as you will remember. Plants that thrive and grow(when actually thrown into shrubbery) are fighters, and am talking from experience.
    Geraniums are pretty to look at and Germany is famous for its pretty geraniums hanging out from window boxes during the summer.
    Thank you so much for your kind compliment on my picture at CG.
