GERANIUMS and ME

Geraniums in the sun;

geraniums not in the sun.

I’m thinking I’m better off in the SON!

I won’t lose my bloom as fast!

Good morning Friends.  I’m experimenting a bit.  I’ve never tried this  with more than one picture.  Hope it turns out right.  If not, I don’t know how to edit so you get it right or wrong.  These pictures were taken last year.  We had a freeze a couple nights ago but the geraniums survived in the little shelter they are in.

Been busy so blogging has suffered.  I have read some but had to give up on most of it.  I will catch as catch can for a few days.  (Now there is an interesting phrase!)

 

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Oneta, I’ve been dreadfully busy too, but was so verily delighted to find your post at the tippy-top of my Reader feed waiting for me…to see! (And read!) I love geraniums…the very reddest of them. But even more than their crimson petals I love the Son even more!! Hugs for returning to us with such a delightful post!!

      Thanks for your kindness, Dawn Marie. The reason for the absence was positive, though not especially successful. Family, garage sale, book, weekly prayer group, SS class just all piled up on me! I’ll probably fill you in on “The Garage Sale that Wasn’t” before too long. Still a lot to that project.

        I understand the quiet spell from your site being filled with other bits of grace! I too have been in a similar boat. Anxious for the Lord to open a frame of space for me to be here (more often) once again. Until then let’s continue to lift one another up in prayer. (And I look forward to hearing about the Invisible Garage Sale!

    Your photos look just fine to me — good for you, for trying a new trick. Believe it or not, our geraniums are just starting to show up in the garden shops. They’re a fall and winter plant for us, like pansies, snapdragons, and cyclamen. The geraniums are usually coddled at homes, but those others are standard bedding plants for landscapers. Amazing, really.

      Wow, what a nice think to look forward to. I once had an aunt who had geraniums in her inside pool. They seemed to be growing up the wall. Very beautiful. Do you know of them? That was in the Colorado Rockies. Of course, I guess it doesn’t matter since they were inside. I just left your peacock spiders. Amazing.

    Geranium pictures look fine to me. Great that you could get them to go side by side like that in the blog. Lovely to see you back.
