One of my greatest joys this time of the year
is seeing my potted geraniums blooming
in all their scarlet red and pink and white-striped
glory across my front window sill.
These cheerful flowers always look so pretty against
a pristine backdrop of newly fallen snow.
I just have to remind myself to water them weekly!
The Geranium Fairy
Cecily Mary Barker
Red, red, vermilion red,
With buds and blooms in a glorious head!
There isn't a flower, the wide world through,
That glows with a brighter scarlet hue.
Her name-Geranium-ev'ryone knows;
She's just as happy wherever she grows,
In an earthen pot or a garden bed-
Red, red, vermilion red!
She's perfect for an indoor fairy garden...
