Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at
Never underestimate the importance of trivia
Did you know that red geraniums were included in the cargo of the First Fleet? They travelled in the Surgeon's quarters which means that they travelled more comfortably than most passengers.

Thanks to the Geranium Man, a passionate advocate and cultivator of these multi-coloured plants, I'm set when this question arises at the next round of trivia at the local bowling club.

Who knew there were so many different varieties?

If you too appreciate the beauty of geraniums and their cousin, the pelargonium, and want to learn about the best way to encourage their growth in your neighbourhood, come and meet the Geranium Man at the Society's 1st of April Meeting. As the special guest, he will be sharing his vast knowledge of this hardy flower providing information and tips to suit both beginner and experienced gardeners. There will also be a Q and A session.

Who knew they could be so beautiful?

This event will be held at Peace Hall at 102 MacDonald Road, Albion, which is an easy walk from Albion Railway Station. Doors open at 12:30 pm with attendees to be seated by 12:45 pm and Geranium Man is scheduled from 1 pm to 1:45 pm.

Seating is limited so bookings are essential. You can contact Society President Tracy on 0427 380 557 or for enquiries

At 2 pm, the doors will be open to anyone wishing to purchase plants. Many varieties of geraniums will be for sale from growers who are obsessed with their greenery. Potting mix will also be available.

The entrance fee is $5 and includes light refreshments. Raffle tickets will be on offer and guess what the prizes will be.....yes, geraniums.

If you are looking to enhance your gardening knowledge, or perhaps just require more Trivia for your weekly competition come along and meet Geranium Man on April 1st. That's a proper noun.

I always think of Parisian flower boxes when I see geraniums. The colour combinations here are beautiful.
