Thoughtful Thursday & Geraniums

Long experience has taught me that people who do not like geraniums have something morally unsound about them. Sooner or later you will find them out; you will discover that they drink, or steal books, or speak sharply to cats. Never trust a man or a woman who is not passionately devoted to geraniums. ~Beverley Nichols

If you are not familiar with Beverly Nichols and his books…then by all means FAMILIARIZE yourself!


My geraniums quite possibly will arrive today.  I ordered them from a local business and asked that they be delivered after Easter.  I am just a bit uneasy about setting out plants before then.  Sadly, I have lost many over the years by getting over zealous and planting too early.  Granted, geraniums are fairly hardy but I usually plant other things alongside and it just now warm enough at night.

Hopefully I will have pictures of them to post soon. Until then…enjoy this one:

I love Geraniums Susan. You can never have enough of them!

You have a local place that delivers? Oh my bank account would suffer if someone would deliver around here!!!! I do have geraniums yet everyone is sold out!

They didnt come in and I am very disappointed. Might not get any unless I can find some locally. Evidently the Shreveport Symphony bought all they could get their hands on and I have no idea WHY. That’s what the lady I ordered from told me. She was much more upset than me. I wasnt the only customer she had to tell this bad news.

What a clever blog! I love all that you represent (crafts, food, and homemaking) As a new Mom myself I need inspiration like this. I have started a food blog and would really appreciate your support by adding this to your blog list. I am for sure adding yours to mine. Also, I love the quiche recipe with asparagus. What a great idea! Thanks again!

oh those are nice! very pretty. well gal..I have some geraniums in a large terra cotta pot by the front door/red ones but alas they have stopped blooming ..for now, but have lots of lush green growth. I expect they may bloom again this year, as here they tend towards being perennials.

Oh, my — please share the name of those pretty flowers. I don’t recognize them — probably not common here in the Midwest.

Hope you get some geraniums. We have so many local growers here it’s an embarrassment of geranium-riches. One of my favorite old varieties is ‘apple blossom’ — soft pink edges, double flowers. So pretty.
