Geraniums Make The World Go Round
One of the many things I remember about Paris was the beautiful window boxes in the many apartment buildings. The summer we were there, most of the window boxes were awash with red geraniums and the white variety as well.
It wasn't until we bought out first home that I realised how easy it is to grow geraniums. The other bonus, of course, is that they require little of no maintenance. In our present home, we have flowers of many varieties, but I have never planted geraniums although I have this inescapable thought that there are some large ceramic pots out the front which could do with some bright colour.
I reckon there's a fair chance there'll be some geraniums there in the next few days, to bolster the petunias that have been a blaze of colour since the first week of October.
These shots were taken on the huge main staircase at Southbank, here in Melbourne. I guess there's not many countries in the world where you see Christmas baubles and geraniums in the same place. But yes, it is summer here .... and now if you'll excuse me, I need to get my gardening gloves, my potting mix and put something out the front of the house.
Yeah, okay, so I've been inspired by these pictures. Gotta run.
