Very healthy foliage as of August 9.

  7. Lieve Mariette,

    Het is en blijft een lief bloemetje van dit soort Pelargonium,heerlijk om zo af en toe van een rijkbloeiende plant wat bloemen te knippen voor in mooi vaasje.
    Ik knipte net wat witte bloemen van Hortensia struik die wat bloeien betreft niet van ophouden weet,het staat leuk op tafel in oude Engelse melkkan die laatst iemand voor mij meebracht toen ze van vakantie terug kwam.

    Voor jou Mariette en Pieter een fijn weekeind gewenst en liefs,
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja een huis zonder bloemen is zoiets van steriel en doods. Er is altijd wel een mooie passende vaas, fles kruik of kan voor te vinden en zoiets is vaak niet te koop!
      Ja, Pieter heeft vanmiddag genoten van een wonderkind, die als jonge wereldberoemde cellist in ons theater speelde, samen met een virtuoze pianist.
      Zelf kon ik er helaas niet bijzijn vanwege mijn operatie aan linker wijsvinger en morgen mag ik pas uit het ziekenhuis. Niet gepland maar zo kan het gaan.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

    1. Dearest Deborah,
      No you did not lose your comment as is evident.
      Yes, the botanical name of Pelargonium indeed refers to the entire geranium family!

  18. Dear Mariette,

    I have been enjoying the different varieties of plants that grow in your garden. So many of them don't grow in The Netherlands. One of the advantages of blogging is that this way I can enjoy them a little too, if only virtually :-)

    Have a good week!

      The reason also is to share with others our extended summer from the south of the USA.
      Indeed it seems at times like taking a little trip!
      Hugs and yes, I'm looking forward to getting discharged tomorrow!

  21. Hello Mariette,
    Sorry to hear your news, I sincerely wish it is not serious and that you are up and about now.
    I have come back from the seaside with a severe lumbago and can't stay long on a chair.... Makes me mad not to be able to run around as usual.... Grrrr!!!
    Your pelargonium is a real beauty, we had many of those in our South African garden!!
    Take good care now and enjoy the good weather :)

    1. Dearest Noushka,
      Yes, I am up and about since Monday when the released me from the hospital by 19:30... It is so lovely for walking in our area right now with almost summer temperatures.
      Hope your severe lumbago will leave you alone soon; it is really grrrrrrr if we feel restricted for running around!
      Hugs to you and glad these pelargonium brought you fond memories of South Africa!
