I have been blown away with a head cold from hell ... strained my left calf muscle trying out the new treadmill, which is too hysterically ironic to believe right ?
Tie that in with a major medication change which is kicking my butt big time but you have to try long enough to see if it is better than what you have been taking ...
Sprinkle some cabin fever in with that because you are just too sick to stand going out in this winter weather .. so you press your nose up against the window and whine (I almost spelled WINE ! .. that is how bad this is !)
I thought OMG ... I haven't posted in so long I am going to disappear ... which logically for the kind of gal that I am, that is rather hard to do .. but at this point I am laying down on the floor playing with cat toys thinking this "bug" will never leave ... my calf muscle will torment me forever .. BYT ... the new treadmill is FANTASTIC ! another ironic twist of course.
And of course the usual full blown impact question we all ask ourselves at some point during winter, "will I never feel half way normal again ?" a stretch for me but it had to be asked.
Yet I digress ... this post is about the PP of the Year : geranium cantabrigiense "Biokovo"
I have had this plant for ages in my garden and it does do everything the "professionals" says that it does ...
The scent reminds me of something but I can't quite nail it ... I guess something woodsy perhaps.
It transplants too easily ... so you can place it any where.
Sometimes underestimated in value .. it seems too common ? .. but it actually is a pretty plant and fills in spots that tend to be bare because of difficult conditions other plants turn their noses up at.
I have to admit I wondered at the selection for this status .. too safe?
Why not a more in your face, here I am ! choice of plant? ..
But after thinking about it .. why not ?
I dread using the OVER-used phrase "workhorse" but it is kind of a staple plant, when you think of it.
Do you have this one in your garden ?
