Bulldog Drummond & Rescued Geraniums

It isn’t something I’d usually listen to, it’s a little dated and a bit full of ‘daring-do’ for my liking but it’s read by Julian Rhind-Tutt and therefore easy to digest. And besides Bulldog Drummond isn’t frightened of anything. What a thing, to be without fear. Think of that.

She told me that she keeps rescuing geraniums from the Close’s shared tip. They think that they are annuals, she said. We’ve had ours for years now. They are all woody and knotty but they keep flowering and that’s good enough for me. It’s a sign of life after all.
