C for ABC Wednesday


A coinkydink of color


A daughter gathered a dozen small geranium plants (red being the color of choice) for her planter boxes. One plant contained a secret which it hid until first bloom. In a coinkydink, this white geranium had been planted exactly in the center of the reds.

I don't know about  you, but I had never seen a white geranium. We still wonder how it turned out to be the pivotal plant. Coinkydink, I guess. Have you had similar coinkydinks?

Lovely blossom and I like the treatment you gave it. I have many coinkydinks in my life and prefer to call them divine interventions! That, or just dumb luck. ;-)

An absolute Coinkydink to say the least.
I don't think I have ever heard of a white geranium either. Great story and a great surprise.
Love your choice of the C word.

This spring I ordered a packet of ivy geraniums. When they came up, Three red-orange plants, one pink, and one white REGULAR geraniums.

Well, I declare, I learnt a new word. Coinkydink... Can't say I'll ever use it in Conversation, I wouldn't know how to pronounce it. But I love it nevertheless.

Cool post. I never hear of a coinkydink before. Thanks for the new word. Also, the flowers are beautiful although there is a hint of pink in the white blossoms! Beautiful.

Cheryl said...

Not a new word but a welcome one! I've only seen odd mixtures from annuals that volunteer each year creating new combinations not usually found at the nurseries. Beautiful treatment.

What a lovey place to fit in a pure white....among the red. Must have made quite a picture.
