GRANDMA SALLY GERANIUMS
My Grandmother always grew flowers of all kinds, and always from cuttings or snips or pinches.  Throughout my life, I got a snip here, a pinch there from her…never got the hang of “cuttings”, tho, like the willow she grew from a cutting, or roses grown that way.  Maybe I didn’t have the patience - or the knack. So mostly I settled for the easy things, like these geraniums. When we had to put her in a nursing home before she passed on, many of us took pinches and snips - whole pots even! -  of her beloved flowers from her gardens. These red geraniums - Grandma Sally geraniums - came from her garden.  They bloom profusely ALL YEAR long. I like to think she is tending them with her love so I have a constant reminder of all the love she ever gave me.
