Geraniums save the (Seventh) day

Fuzzy foliage and delicate color -- what's not to love about this chocolate peppermint-scented geranium in bloom under the lights downstairs?

Outside, the going was tough. Snow. Gray skies. A few seedheads stretching above the snowbanks. There is beauty in winter, but this Jan. 7 I also craved a hit of color. The scented geraniums, or more accurately, pelargoniums, obliged. The blossoms are small, but they did the heavy lifting on this Seventh Day Project. See what I mean in the slide show at top right.
