Window Dwelling Geraniums

    What you see in the photo are our geraniums that spend the summer in our window box outside our living room windows.  It’s a pretty harsh environment for them in the summer, their box is located in sort of a heat-trap, and when the afternoon sun comes around it can generate pretty uncomfortable conditions.  After all those months in the blazing sun, I rip them out of the window box. stuff them into a pot, and put them on the window sill.
    Now in the winter, they are again, right beside a window, but this time on the inside,  looking out at the winter conditions outside.  To me it seems like an altogether difficult life, but they don’t seem to mind, and like the rest of us, they are probably just biding their time, looking forward to summer’s return.

  1. I have heard , around here, people take them from their summer outdoors,shake off most of the potting soil, put them in a paper bag and hang them from the basement rafter,then replant outside for the summer.
