|Bi-coloured silver leaf pelargonium "Silver Wings"|
It seems appropriate that I feature Pelargonium "Silver Wings"as I have recently returned from a fantastic two weeks holiday to California. I went to visit my friend Sandy, who had arranged the most amazing trip to visit so many other pelargonium growers. It was so nice to meet up with pelargonium enthusiasts I had met before, and many others I have corresponded with and others I had known of but never met. Everyone was so kind and welcoming and I had the most wonderful time.
When I left home at the end of June the garden was very green. On my return it was almost a blaze of colour. Needless to say, there were a lot of weeds which I have been slowly clearing. My husband had very kindly watered the greenhouses and pots.
I was dreading visiting the allotment, but was pleasantly surprised at how few weeds there were and how well the vegetables had fared. My grandson (5 years), younger son and I dug a row of potatoes, and lifted the onions.
Tuesday is the day of the village Garden Club second Annual Show. I took on the position of Show Secretary so have been busy with last minute preparations for the show. Monday is the day the Entries have to be in so I hope there will be a steady stream of visitors to my door.
