Since I have arrived I've had sitting around the apartment a box of seemingly dead plants.
I assumed they were dead because my once robust and beautiful geraniums looked like dried twigs sticking out of moldy potting soil. (I figured this was the likely aftermath of moving them in a cold car and the shock of less, and dramatically colder, air.)
Incidentally, I've been meaning to dump them out for quite some time, but just haven't gotten around to it.
Good thing, because yesterday I took a look at them again and two of the geraniums have leaves! I couldn't believe my eyes!!
The other plants should really thank those two because I've now decided to keep them all around a little longer to see what happens.
It's kind of like Night of the Living Dead. Crap. I wish I hadn't said that because they are in my bedroom right now...
