Last one, this doesn't nearly show the depth of the black in the petals. A Martha Washington type, Black Knight.

Girl I got one for you that was speckled but ...sigh.. alas it was not the bird egg. I'm still looking though!!!

You're welcome to any cuttings of mine that you want. Give a holler if you want me to make a list.
I did get a nifty new 'Apple blossom' hybrid. Neat burgundy on the foliage.

I had no clue Dave's even had a geranium forum. LOL. Lali girl, I am holding up my too hands with 2 fingers crossing saying you will not put a new hex on me... NO MORE INTEREST IN GERANIUMS!!! No matter how many great pictures you tempt me with.

I just can't take another load of plants here. You know I have been flirting with fuchsias and have looked around and suddenly I have about 25 of them. I had no clue I was buying them in such numbers

Oh Kell... lookie lookie...
I found an amazing butter cream colored pel today. Not white, not off white, but like buttah!

I can't describe it's color, except to say that I've seen a scabiosa that has similar coloring and it was amazing. This one actualy glows!

This one is huge, in a 5 gallon can

Well, you know, this is just the pits, why couldn't I have settled somewhere where the nurseries are plentiful, NOOOO I have to settle where there isn't a darned good nursery within l00 miles of me. The pits I tell ya the pits, I just love those geranium picures, did you buy a bunch ?

I bought a few from them but not on this trip since I got the ones I liked the previous trip. If I ever get caught up on my other trades, I'll be happy to send a few cuttings your way. I'm just way behind on other trades, weather here has been miserable and too hot to ship anything.

If I forget, just bug me.

Cali is good in the respect that we do have lots of great nurseries. Especially in the bay area!! And Kell knows them all, so she's a great gal to tag along with!! She's brought me to some great ones!!!

It's better today, but was up near 115 the last few days. Yesterday was a pleasant 88 which is very weird since the day before was 110. Sigh, the weather... what to do. So yes, let's talk again in the fall.
