It looks like got quite a bit of wind while we were visiting my sister for Thanksgiving. When we returned, we were created with this blanket of elm leaves coating everything in the front yard. Despite it looking like Fall, our temperatures have been in the mid-to-upper 70’s. Blah! I think I have Seasonal Effective Disorder (SAD) but in the opposite way of most people. Around the holidays I want the dark and the cold. Temperatures like these put me all out of sorts and make it feel ridiculous to put up Christmas decorations and lights. Oh well, must do out anyway, I suppose.
Even with all these leaves falling, though, this geranium continues to throw off flowers year round. It is a simple plant, but I always delight in seeing it as I enter the house each day. It is over 15 years old and was an original housewarming gift from my co-workers at the time.
