An Explosion of Beauty
I mentioned my love for the giant Geranium maderense in my back yard a few weeks ago. I think she appreciated the positive reinforcement, because she started to bud right afterward. She’s now putting on quite a show.
I can’t help but feel a little melancholy at the display. Since she’s monocarpic, the blooms mean she’s not long for this world. Still, if you’ve gotta go out, you might as well go out in an explosion of beauty.
Hopefully she’ll leave a new generation behind. I’ll be on the lookout for seeds.
