Roses are Red But....


Happy Friday Ya'll! Boy! Wasn't it Friday...just yesterday?? I got outside yesterday and planted some Geraniums in the pot by the shop's back door. I love these things...The reds are Really hardy and bright. I Also took this with my little Canon Power Shot A1000IS. It has a Macro setting on it and I'm Trying to get it to work for me...So! Nothing else new here. Looking forward to some yard work...mowing and flower bed prep...coffee...coffee...feet up...Hahaaa....Have fun everyone!

So pretty!!

Geraniums do better for me if I just let them be. Patti taught me that; she said I over-watered. She never touched hers, and they were gorgeous!

Hope you have a great, yard-working, feet up, coffee break weekend. I did the mowing Wednesday, but it still looks bad with all the brown grass. arrgghhh I want GREEN, dang IT!! :)

I can't wait until it's time to mow the grass!

We've got those purple weeds growing in the yard but the bermuda grass isn't greening up yet. I have no luck with geraniums. I think I worry them to death. :-)

Have a great weekend Miz Donna!!!!

Sally- You're Right! Seems like if you leave them pretty much on their Own, they tend to do Better! Patti's a sharp cookie!!
Sending you all BIG hugs sweetheart!!!hughugs

Jann-HAhahahaa....I should have known...'tis Your Season isn't it!! Happy weekend!!hughugs

Brenda- Is it too wet there for Geraniums? I would have figured Arkansas would be perfect for them! It's a Pretty state...
You to Sweetie!!!!hughugs

I haven't geranies now, they all are dead, thy didn't survive the winter. I have to buy new when spring comes....
Happy week end to you!:)

Donna said...

Rosie- Thanks Sweetie! That's a good idea! Happy weekend!!hughugs

Lille- Spring is on the way!! Hang in there!!hughugs

Donna said...

Wow, look at that gorgeous RED flowers! I used to grow a mixture of different cottage flowers in my flower pots. But several years ago, I converted over to just geraniums in the big pots. They grow great! We keep the old bloom pinched off and only water when the soil gets bone dry.

We're getting pretty sore from our yardwork, LOL. Hope you don't overdo it, sweetie!

I love the flower photos!
Geraniums do well for me 'cause I seem to plant the flowers then forget to do anything else!

I enjoyed your beautiful geranium, in Michigan, we have until May before we can get into potting up flowers...and I cannot wait. But, in the meantime, we can certainly enjoy those of you who live in sunnier and warmer climates! Thanks for the glimpse of what's to come! Have a great weekend!
