One weekend this spring, students at Miss Hall's School in western Massachusetts had a plant sale.
Light pink geraniums were on my mind for our window boxes.
So I drove to the school, parked the car, and headed for the plants, filled with hope.
Light pink geraniums bobbed in the sunshine but the deep pink ones, shown in this post, stole my heart.
They were so bright that I had to squint to look at them.
Their deep, dark green leaves set off the color of the flowers.
The bountiful beauties were called Fantasia Violet geraniums, even though they are definitely not violet in color.
They now sit on either side of pink million bells in the two
window boxes in the front of our house.
A light pink geranium came home with me, too, and now sits in a big pot at the base of the back yard fountain.
Don't you just love spring?
