Brigthening up the grey December days, these are flowers from the pelargoniums I brought in from the garden at the end of October. They are flowering again.
They sit colourfully in the vase with Euonymous.
The backdrop is my current crochet work-in-progress. The Amanzi throw by Jen Tyler.
Worked in Stylecraft Special DK and a 4.5mm hook.

I have picked all the flowers off my pelargoniums and lifted the plants.
In the past I have tried to dry them out and then repot in the Spring and planting out after frosts have finished – this had very limited success.
For the past couple of years I have dug them up and kept them going inside all winter, then planted them out again – each time removing the blooms and taking cuttings.
It seems to work and I get the bonus of flowers all winter.
I feed them with a little Tomato feed each week.
What do you do with yours?
