Italian Beauty & an Australian Lady
Having said yesterday that I don't grow Regal Pelargoniums, the one pictured here is one I do grow in my greenhouse and I just love the colour. It is called Roseto and is from the collection of Riccardo Gallucci. Not a show plant, Roseto likes to grow tall, and has been flowering on and off all summer in the greenhouse.
We had a visit this morning from our younger son, his daughter and son. My granddaughter will be doing sewing as part of her school art and design project his year and said she did not find it easy to use a sewing machine. So, we made pink and lilac cushions for her bedroom. It was good practice for her.
I am expecting The Pelargonium and Geranium Society magazine to be delivered to me next week to be posted out to all our members, so this afternoon I printed off labels for all the envelopes and made a start on labelling the envelopes.
