This afternoon, my dear son, Patrick, took little Nathan to the playland at McDonald's for a special brother bonding outing. Free time doesn't come my way very often, so I went exploring at the local supermarket (one I'd never been to). I was actually looking for a scenic Northern Idaho calendar that is to be out in July (containing some photos we submitted) and on sale at this market ... but none were to be found today. On the way out, I got a whiff of a scented geranium; one of my favorite plants. There on the sidewalk in front of the store was a whole display of "Mosquito" plants for sale. These were actually citronella scented geraniums ... and since they are a bit hard to find, I made a purchase. Having one on my front porch with its wonderful perfumed leaves giving off their fragrance reminds me of my old home and is comforting.
