Beautiful Valentine's Day

Instead of flowers, I asked Frank that I would rather go to Target and replace some of my geraniums which suffered badly in the cold weather. I also got some alysum since I think they are so pretty and add the finishing touch.
I got three types of geraniums...a pink peppermint colored, red, and a solid pink...the alysum is pure white.
I also replanted the small live Christmas tree that I had given to Peter's dorm originally...he brought it home for the winter break, so I took care of it, and it now has some new growth, so repotted it so that it could grow some more!
Also got some English lavender...I hope I don't kill this one this time!
I just love my geraniums, though, since I have a hard time killing those!!

And I'll keep tending my poor hydrangeas...sigh...they just don't grow for me...and I think the cold weather got to them too, but I do see new growth, so watered them and loosened the soil a bit for them.
So a very nice, sunny Valentine's day for us here in Moorpark, California...

Nothing is better for the heart than flowers...and my favorites are the ones I grow myself. I will blog about my seedlings this week. They bring me HUGE joy!!!

Annelies, I'm sure mine won't compare to your's! But I'm content with my flowers due to my brown thumb since it's a miracle they grow...
