I've said it a million times--I love fall. Right now, I'm enjoying the turning leaves and sweaters I haven't worn in months. The general autumny-ness of the moment is awesome.
There's this thing about fall, though. Winter always follows.
So, to bring a little life inside to what I know is going to be a spring-starved house, I bring my geraniums inside. Did you know you could overwinter them?
I don't do anything fancy. If you're the fancy type, click on that link and see what Martha recommends. I just bring them inside in early October, re-pot them, and put the pot in a sunny window.
And to all you Southerners and Californians who think winter is 60 degrees...you lucky ducks don't know how good you have it!
