Take Me Back

It never ceases to amaze me how a smell, a sound or even a plant can take us back in time.   The plant for me is a geranium.  Every time I see a geranium it reminds me of a flower bed from my youth.  Why this plant, more so than others, that’s the mystery.  But I love geraniums.  Finally, I seem to have found a spot where they seem to be perfectly content, and lucky for me its on my front porch.

Now believe it or not the bottom picture is a flower from the above plant just taken at a different time of day.  The top picture was taken in the middle of the day whereas the bottom picture was taken at dawn.  So I guess they’re right when they tell you timing is everything. 🙂  What plants bring back fond memories for you?

    Hi Charlotte, your Geranium is lovely. I’ve finally started having them again now that I know why mine never looked good. Apparently I overwatered and they don’t like that I heard.
    Your blog is great and I’ve enjoyed snooping around clear back to your first post. You’re doing excellent for just having started and living under a rock. Hey maybe we were neighbors under those rocks. hehehe Someone told me I should do a blog on my gardening and I didn’t have a clue what a blog was! Well, I’m always up for a challenge so 2 days later I started mine. LOL And speaking of which thank you so much for stopping by. I just love the company!
    I’ll be back . . .

    Your geraniums are such a vibrant pink! So gorgeous! It’s funny, I never liked the smell of geraniums. I remember as a kid when I helped my mom plant these in her garden, that the smell of the stems would not come off my hands easily. The leaves definitely have a distinct smell!
