Not Your Typical Scented Geranium!

When we left for Europe in July, we had to plant most of our potted herbs in the ground.  This scented geranium wasn't doing nearly as well as it is now that it has been raining 40 days and nights (kidding!).  I just ran out to get its name for you.  It's called 'Madame Nonin'.  Of course, had to find out about the Madame.  Known for its beautiful flower and I think I missed them!  I also stumbled onto this website Hobbs Farm and Greenery when I googled 'Madame Nonin'.  Lorraine Smith has a passion for geraniums.  She is in Hope, Maine.  Need to do a road trip some summer!  I think she must have every known scented geranium!  Could stay at Sharon Lovejoy's Comfort Found Literary Lodging!  Googled Hope and it's not too far away and then there is always L.L. Bean in Rockport (Ms. Sharon reminded me it's Freeport, not Rockport!)  I so wanted to be a mapmaker when I was young.  The math kept me from it!  So Lorraine says cut it back and bring it in.  Will do, Lorraine!  Going to have warm weather here again SOON!  Hope you are having a good day.  The Herbal Husband is getting ready to go to Florida!  Talk to you later.

Hi dear,

WHOOOOOA, if you're going to the nursery I am too. Let's make it a must do for next summer.

Loved it that you might stay at Comfort Inn and thanks for the mention.

This is fantastic! I do not have this one, but would love to.

Sending love across the miles. I just returned from HOT Florida and the wonderful Landscape Show in Orlando.

P.S. L.L. Bean is Freeport, but Rockport is Great. One of my favorite restaurants is Shepherd's Pie.

Well, it may not be next summer, Sharon. Getting the new kitchen and a couple of bathrooms. Sooo, we'll work on it. Ooops, I meant Freeport and wrote Rockport!

I love scented geraniums. I wish they were perennials, not annuals. They are so sweet and old-fashioned. That one looks bionic!

Oh I bet you could cut it back and root the cuttings. Ive done stuff like that, its ez. But wow, it went wild while you were gone. I love scented geraniums and have two on my back porch.

Just caught your comment, SN! Yes, it really enjoyed being out in the summer heat. This one is definitely coming inside. It will be in the garage. Thanks for your comments as always.
