Swapping Cuttings

Red Geranium

Today’s prompt…

I love this Red Geranium 🙂  Two years ago I brought back two cuttings from Jess’ house and gave one to Dad. Last winter mine died in the frost so I’m just waiting for Dad’s to grow big enough for me to take a piece! And Dad and Jess were both eyeing off my latest plant when they were here before Christmas and putting in their orders for cuttings once it grows 🙂 Elijah and Pip both have geraniums in their gardens, too, and my Mother-in-Law often gives me cuttings.

And, of course, I often manage to sneak a geranium or two into my stories 🙂

You can never have too many Geraniums!

Lemon Tree…Very Pretty

Today’s prompt…

I love lemons 🙂 We only planted this Meyer Lemon tree last November when we moved into the house and it is thriving. I also planted a Lisbon in our small orchard about four years ago and it has suffered a few setbacks but is still hanging in there. At both my previous homes I planted lemon trees but they didn’t do well, yet here where the soil is much poorer, and conditions more harsh, it looks like I’m going to have plenty of lemons in the future.  Lemon Meringue Pie, Lemon Pudding, Lemon Sago, Lemon Butter . . .yum!

Sometimes writing is like my lemon trees; often the best writing comes amid the worst conditions. Many contributors have told me they started writing after a low spot in their lives. When life gives us lemons . . . 🙂
