For as long as I can remember my mom has had three terracotta pots with geraniums in them. She’d bring them inside in the winter and then set them back out in the summer. Sometimes they’d die and she’d have to get new ones, but we always had three red geraniums.
The past few years I’ve planted three red geraniums in three terracotta pots as well. Last year it was just so hot and dry that they didn’t last too long, so I had to buy some new ones this year. Around Mother’s Day Ace Hardware will put them on sale for .99 each. I picked a few up and set them out on Nate’s front porch.
