GERANIUMS ~ MY GARDENING SUCCESS

Hi Everyone,
Since the kids went back to school, I have been motivated to do some cleaning and organizing that I didn't get to over the summer.  Nothing exciting, but it feels good to have my house back in order.  I know you can all relate.

I would like to share my one gardening success this summer before it's too late.
At the end of May, I planted white geraniums in the planters on our front porch.



They get lots of sunshine here and I gave them some Miracle Gro a couple times.
Other than that, just lots of water and they are happy campers, growing like crazy.


I snip off the blooms when they start turning brown so the plants energy
can go into making more flower buds.



I hope they last a while longer. 


As soon as we have a frost, that will be it for this year.


So I'm going to enjoy them as long as I can.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  1. I am so envious of anyone with a lovely garden this year. With our drought, I can't justify using water in my garden. And now that the wildfires have begun, there is no way I can use precious water. Maybe next year my garden will look pretty like yours.

  2. Beautiful! Mine are all dead... heavy frost last Thursday killed just about everything and then the weather turned warm again. Have a happy weekend!

  4. JoAnne- Those geraniums are just gorgeous. You know one of the things I like best about white geraniums is at night when it is bright out- they almost glow. I didn't do nearly as much this year as I have other years...and I only got two small white geraniums in. Yours look just lovely- xo Diana

  6. JoAnne, they are beautiful! That spot must be just right for them. Geraniums are my very favorite! Some years when it is extremely hot they poop out but I've had pretty good luck this year too. You'll have to remember that variety so you can get them again. :)
