Balcony In Bloom

The Dutch are usually very tolerant people, but I find they have one prejudice; geraniums. I've heard many a time a saying something along the lines of 'sitting and watching the geraniums grow', an expression referring to the elderly, or getting old. And that makes all the Dutch my age dislike this pretty bright flower. Shame on you. I love geraniums, my mum had red ones just like I've planted in front of her shop, Cinderella, that she had for a few years. And I think they'll be hardy enough for this brilliant summer we're having. so, go, geraniums, go! I say.
