      The geranium usually sits before many a door, so perhaps that is why you associate the smell to welcoming. Very cool, jr cline. ~amy

        Thank you, yes. Funny that i thought they smelled terrible when I was a kid, to decide the memories that swamp my emotions & connect me to such a wonderful woman would occur only having lost her. Now the smell is a welcome blessing ~amy

      3. Ha, ha, that is funny! I couldn’t stand the smell either, but I wasn’t sure to say something about it or not…so now I’m relieved you had the same reaction! :):):)

    We had a geranium we took out a bit early in the Spring and it lost its leaves. Nonetheless, the kept growing and soon there were blossoms on this nearly leafless plant. It still has very few leaves but has flowers and very green stems. I guess the stems catch enough energy to keep it going. 🙂
