I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    One of my favorite pictures of Europe, are the red Geraniums in the window boxes. There are a lot of bulb flowers I like. So pretty, but the fact they have a short bloom period turns me off. I want color from Spring to Fall. Or Winter here.

    I have some deep red geraniums. They are my favorite colors. I have my fingers crossed for the hyacinths as well.
