Does anyone else bring geraniums inside for the winter?
When I was a little girl, my mother always potted up her geraniums in the fall and brought them in to sit on the windowsills for the winter. Now, it seems, most people go to the nursery in the spring to buy them, plant them outside for the summer, and then throw them out at the end of the season.
Is this because most houses don't have windowsills any more, or simply part of our disposable society?
Most years I pot up a couple of my better ones and put them on a plant stand which spends the winter in front of our door to the deck. Sort of like having a hot chicken sandwich once in a while in honour of my father, maybe.
Have a good day, everyone.
