Today is the first really cold day of fall, which makes me sad for my flowers. My front porch is full of annuals who’s days are numbered according to the weather lady. I remember my grandma having HUGE pots of geraniums in her house over the winter that were several years old. So, instead of buying new plants, I am going to attempt to keep these alive for next summer!
Here is a sad flower pot on my porch in October.
I pulled out the plants gently, trying not to disturb too much dirt from the roots.
Then I found two empty pots, added dirt and put two geraniums in each.
Here they are in my office. Cross your fingers they do well! I always remember my grandma having pots of geraniums on the porch of the farmhouse growing up. Call me sentimental but having these in my office makes me so happy.
I found this little guy left over and tucked him in a pot. I’m excited to see if he’ll bloom!
While I was cleaning up the dirt on the porch, I saw these sad little guys left over. Knowing that frost is on the way, I quickly rescued them with a small pot I found tucked in the basement.
I know that petunias and marigolds blooms aren’t supposed to last forever but I hope to enjoy them on my table a bit longer now that they’re warm. So, get outside and rescue the last of your blooms before the frost hits!
