Re: geranium cheryls shadow


A stroll in the garden tonight tells me it isn't the same plant even
before I read the tag.... mine has a finer leaf. I guess winter takes it
toll on my memory as well. In any case, mine is Geranium pratense
"Midnight Reiter"

   
oh... and while I was out there, the crapemyrtle is Lagerstroemia indica
'red filli' pp14353. A slight mishap the other night has made it not
quite so wonderful.... a basket came down in the windstorm and landed
right on it.... sigh. I thought everything would have been fine in the
cold frame/greenhouse contraption, but that darn wind was blowing so
hard it was shaking it so bad.....
