The plants often called 'geraniums' have never been a favourite of mine but have long been popular in Australian gardens. They grow so easily from cuttings, people pass them along and they seem to do well with little care.
Did you know that a lot of the plants we have always called 'geraniums' are in fact pelargoniums?
Here are a few that were left behind by the last gardener who was, it seems, a big fan.

Despite these photos, I am still no fan. The flowers are OK but the plants are straggly and are the focal point outside of the lounge window. I think I can do better so they are coming out!
Bye bye pelargoniums!!
