Visit to Belgium

Hello again.  It seems an age since I was last here, but I have had a friend from California visiting and so not much time for blogging, or crochet, or gardening.   She returned home last week, and I have been 'catching up' with myself.

As you will know, I am a 'pelarholic'!  I have two greenhouses full of pelargoniums, from species to zonals.  My friend Sandy is the same - in fact we met on the Internet about 13 years ago through our love of pelargoniums.  We have had several pelargonium related trips together over the years.  This trip we went to Belgium to visit Michiel's Fuchsia and Pelargonium Nursery.   Oh, we were in pelargonium heaven! The plants were in absolute tip top condition and we bought several plants that are not now readily available here in the UK.  We even went back the following morning for a few more plants!    Needless to say, my car was full of plants because we also had some that friends had asked us to look out for.
