Mr Wren


Mr Wren

Today's photo is of the zonal pelargonium, Mr Wren.   Another firm favourite of mine.  Mr Wren grows fast and tall - a bit like Jack's beanstalk, but much prettier!  It is not easy to train him into a bushy plant, so I just let mine grow.  He has been growing in a 6" pot outside the greenhouse door and he has been flowering all summer.   Apparently this plant was originally found in the garden of a Mr Wren in California.

We did the grocery shopping today and this afternoon I was hoping to get some more cuttings taken, but we found we had to go into town and were out for most of the afternoon. Maybe tomorrow?

I would love to hear your comments about my "ramblings".
