Geraniums often have the reputation of being a run-of-the-mill flower, not true.

About two months ago at the end of March, I pulled my geraniums out of hibernation, a bit brown with only a few green leaves. I changed them to fresh earth cut with a fair amount of compost and left-over winter ashes, all in clean pots. I set them all along the steps where the morning sun falls.

Today they are covered with deep-red flowers, adding their unique touch to the garden.
