I say geraniums and most think summer and outside planters. The thing is, if there is a south window with lots of sun, they will keep blooming all winter. I get the best results if I cut them back a bit in early fall so they don’t get lanky as they are starting to do in the picture. There is one drawback as is apparent in the picture, they leave little red peddles all over the floor all winter. Totally worth it to have these cheery flowers non stop from the time we bring them in.
In the upper part of the picture there is another plant that isn’t too clear. Here is another winter surprise. And, I guess it feels spring in the air because it is now covered with blooms. It looks like a lime, but it is a lemon. If I let it turn yellow, it is over ripe.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of my violets blooming. I’ve given starts to several friends and their plants are blooming like crazy—mine are growing but no blooms. I repotted them last summer and I think they are still getting used to their new digs. At least that’s what I’m telling myself because I’m a little prideful about my violets.
