With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Winter White

Winter White

I think my geraniums do better wintering over in the house than they do outside in the summer! This plant is several years old and doesn't show any signs of growing tired.
It winters in a crowded south-facing dining room window with other salvaged non-perennial vacationers.



I love the color white!

You know what? I was going to try your tutorial for the German paper stars and forgot! I really do want to learn how to make them. Thank you for keeping that tutorial up! I haven't been blogging regularly since my hubby retired...I am hoping to do better. Its always been hard for me to switch gears. I folded an origami star yesterday afternoon.

This is so beautiful!!! You have so many talents! I've heard you can bring them in during the winter months, but never really though one plant would last this long! Amazing! Are you ready for the snow tomorrow???

So beautiful! You definitely have a "green thumb". I, too, love white flowers. IN the spring, I plant white impatiens. They are so beautiful in the moonlight.

What is it about plants in PA/NJ? My gardens always were fabulous there...especially our veg. garden and herb garden. I cannot get much to grow here...the soil is so very sandy.
Or maybe my thumb has turned black...

Hi Lorraine, These are such pretty blossoms. When I look at the close-up detail of the flower's center, I am reminded of what beauty and wonder God has surrounded us with. You saying you love white, my Aunt had a bedroom that had dark mahogany furniture and all of her bed linens, drapes etc. were white - oddly different shades of white (!) and it was so elegant. Hope you have a good day.

Beautiful white geraniums! I try to bring mine in the house over the winter, but they always get scraggly and unhealthy. What are your secrets to keeping them so beautiful? I have lots of natural light in my house, but I must not use enough fertilizer or something!

Your geranium is so beautiful and that eye roast looked pretty beautiful too!
Sorry I haven't been by to visit muh - our internet has been down since Friday evening and I'm trying to get in a few visits while I'm at work.
Your recipes all sound yummy...especially since it's just about my lunch time!!
I loved your little bags of Valentine treats for your grandchildren ~ were those chocolate covered Oreos? Whatever they were - tjey looked good! Your toast Valentine message looked good too! I think your photographs are always so wonderful.
Have a joy-filled day!
Enjoy your snow!!

Geraniums are my one of my favorite flowers! Especially red ones but white is my second favorite. I've never tried growing them indoors but I'm definitely going to give it a go. At least inside there will be no Japanese Beetles! LOL (o;
