Frosty February

It's minus 25. Feels more like minus 35.
Just moody and miserable.

Meanwhile back at the ranch the geraniums have been getting tall and leggy.

Add caption the time has come to trim them off. Quite short.
My mother did this every winter, much to the horror of my grandmother, who let hers grow tall and leggy. By summer her plants would tower taller than I but only a bloom or two. And mom's would be wild with colour.
Almost 2 new branches for every stem cut.

Hoping the cut off ends will root.  Sometimes they do. I am planning a pink balcony railing geranium display so every one that takes is one less to buy.

Here we are a few days later...
