85 Geraniums....

Today it's exactly 5 years ago my Mam passed away. Every year after she died, I've made a special blogpost to honour her. In a few of these previous blogposts I wrote about her last geranium. I took it with me to take care of it...

I wrote about the slips we are taking every year from this Mother Plant. Second year we had about 10. last year about 30 and this year already over 100 geraniums! My dear friend Herman took care of it with his green fingers :-)





This year my mother had become 85, so we planted last week 85 geraniums in the garden around our little Summerhouse.They are still little ones now, but I think this will be the most beautiful geranium-flowerbed I've ever seen. I'm looking forward to it.

Ofcourse I would like to show it to her... She would have loved her special 'Annie' flowerbed


If you like to read the other posts about my Mam:

The first year  I posted this one: to honour my mom
(including some funny animations my mother made)

The second year I wrote another blogpost about her: far away, but still near 

As I said before the third year I wrote about her geranium

And last year I wrote:  In memori-mam, thinking of you...

Wat geweldig dat mam's plant zich zo in rap tempo vermenigvuldigt!
Bijzonder, de 85 stekkies op het eiland. Nelleke, dank voor de memorial. Liefs Trudie
