Scented Geranium Part II (Plants by Mail)
About a week ago I posted about ordering some scented geraniums thru the internet. As you can see from the photos, they finally arrived yesterday by UPS. This being the first time ordering plants by mail, I was a bit skeptical about the condition they would arrive in. All survived and seem to be doing well. My favorite two are the peppermint and rose scents. I feel as though they are some type of adopted childern needing a mother's nurture (lol). Plans have already been made for taking care of them in the winter months by having a few indoor planter boxes in the foyer. It's funny the way God has hardwired his female creation with the desire to take care of everybody and everything including plants. I suppose if it was left up to the menfolk the children (and house plants) would look like little raggamuffins running around not caring if socks or shirts matched pants. And good thing we women are not to be the hunters as we'd all starve from not wanting to shoot "Bambi's mother" for dinner.
