Elegance Purple Majesty


One of the lovely pelargonium that did not survive the dry heat of indoor air.
It may have been caused by my a wrong choice of pot.
Unlike the hortorum type, the domesticum is less tolerant of dry soil.
So a clay pot was a mistake, they dry too quickly.

See photo and description.

Elegance Burgundy


This one survived the dry indoor conditions of winter heating.
I've included lots of new information.
If you like this type of online reference, share with your gardening friends.
Regal pelargonium are well worth collecting.
This will keep them from being 'lost'. - Elegance Burgundy

Trailing pelargonium

Forgot to add this one in the previous index.
Took a few terminal cuttings for the season.
Not blooming yet but looks healthy. - Global Merlot - Royal Dark Burgundy

Trailing Pelargonium

This ivy survived the winter in a self watering hanging pot by a sunny window.
I did let the soil dry in between watering to avoid rot and blisters on the leaves. - Royal Dark Burgundy - Dark Red Blizzard


The first of the collection.
The Blue and the white are also beautiful and worth collecting. - Dark Red Blizzard

Prints are available for all tree

Wild Life

Took this photo last year.
Now I feed them along a trail in the wooded area of my property.
Since then, they have been joined by Mallard ducks.

Annual visit

First met the owner at the Ottawa, Byward market a few years ago.
The selection is huge and the plants are healthy.
Well worth a detour.
