The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

To be rooted ...

Over wintering Geranium ...
 
 
One morning, in early November, I took a few stem cuttings from the Geranium growing in a big clay pot in our garden.  I placed the cuttings in a vase of water and gave it a nice sunny spot on the window ledge.  Apart from changing the water every few days, I literally forgot about it.
Now, I have a vase filled with lovely strong roots and the sweetest little red blooms :-)

is perhaps the most important
and least recognized need

My grandmother used to root geraniums on her windowsill. She always had the windowsill filled with clay pots of geraniums. I remember laying on her daybed in the kitchen and looking out over the geraniums onto her farmland and the ndighboring cows. Thanks for bringing back such lovely memories.
