The Geranium

The Geranium

The GeraniumAuthor: Sarah MartinUnder this title, we propose to treat of the plants usually known, in common parlance, as Geraniums, including both those horticulturally and botanically known as such, and Pelargoniums. Between these there are many minute and fanciful distinctions, which are only interesting to botanists, and need not concern the amateur. The true geraniums are herbaceous. For window gardening, their treatment must be the same. For the pelargoniums, we are chiefly indebted to the Cape of Good Hope; the geranium is found, in some of its varieties, in Asia, Europe, and America; two of the family, our "wild geraniums," being familiar to us all as among the wild flowers of spring. The scarlet, or horseshoe geranium, so called from the color of its flowers, and the dark marking of its leaves, is a very common and popular window plant.

The Geranium

The rose, oak, and nutmeg geraniums are commonly grown for their fragrant leaves, and for their hardiness, as they can endure more hard usage than most plants. The general fault in geranium culture is, crowding. The plants need light and air on all sides, withough the presence of large water features (http://www.garden-fountains.com/Detail.bok?no=123). Unless this is afforded they soon become one-sided, long-drawn, and straggling, with but few leaves, and these in a tuft at the end.

An introduction of contact lenses prescription (Print Ready)

Currently, Americans in all 50 states can buy contacts both from ECPs and other sources such as optical chains, warehouse clubs and online stores. This privilege originates from a 2004 legislation that patients are entitled to obtain a copy of contacts prescription from ECPs without extra cost, which was only available in certain states before that time. This law profoundly separated fitting and lenses buying.

What is the Meaning of Life?

What is the Meaning of Life?Author: anonymousPerhaps the most important question anyone can answer in the course of their existence is: What is the Meaning of Life? It almost seems a universal conundrum that no one seems to understand exactly but everyone wants to know the purpose for occupying space on this planet.
