However, there is one big exception-the 2 pots of red geraniums on the front porch. I have keep them through the winter for several years. They are so big, and so showy, and bloom so well I cannot bear to leave them out in the cold. Because they are so big though, they are hard to move. Poor hubby helps me move these 2 plants around all winter.
Sometimes they stay in the garage, sometimes they are inside, and sometimes they stay in the protected corners of the front porch covered with sheets. Now remember, it does not get very cold here in my part of Texas , and even when it does, it warms up quickly.
This is what the geraniums look like today. As you can see, they have lots of blooms-and even more buds! I do not feed them at all during the winter months, so they are blooming like this without food!
It has been cool and cloudy for a week or so here. Seeing these beautiful flowers remind me that spring is almost upon us and sunshine is on the way!
