We have had the warmest winter on record or close to it. As the midwest and east coast have been pounded by snowfall after snowfall, we have experienced temps in the sixties. Little rain. Lots of sunshine. Even SoCal has had more rain than us. Or so it seems.
There are blessings to be had despite the lack of snowfalls or snow days. On Sunday I found these in the front flower box.
And my geranium wintered over.
The first picture is before I cut it back and fertilized it. I am hoping that by taking out the dead foliage and giving it fertilizer that it will begin to grow. I even stuck some of the trimmings back into the soil in hopes that the will to live will be strong thus rooting itself into new life.
So to winter I say thanks even if it wasn’t the winter I had hoped to experience.
