Out of Sync Geraniums

    Every fall we take the geraniums that grow all summer long in our window box, dig them out, cut them back, put them in pots, then take them inside and put them on the window sill in my bedroom to overwinter.  I only water them when they really get dry and the pots feel light when you pick them up.  The skeletal looking stems slowly develop new leaves, start to grow, and form into recognizable geraniums again.
    One of the geraniums is presently blooming.  It seems rather disjointed to see the brilliant red bloom against the snow covered whiteness of winter on the other side of the glass.
    When winter is over and the warm weather returns, we will cut them way back and plant them back outside in the window box  where they will again spend the summer.
