  4. Great selections, Alison. Exquisite The dark pelargonium is a keeper.

    Everybody needs a greenhouse. It was 45º here this morning with a cold wind when I slid my door open and stepped inside to a wonderful 67 degrees, a room full of green and some ripe tomatoes hiding among foliage. Do you agree it's like a daily vacation, playing in dirt?

  5. I'm so glad you encouraged me to get a greenhouse! Such a special place to be in the winter! I've had Abutilon 'Red Tiger' before but treated it as an annual. This year, I'll look for one at the NWFGS, keep it in a pot and bring it in for the winter! Your blooms are delightful!

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
