Can We Go Outside Yet?

Over wintered 09-10 part 1:
Every fall, I bring in one pot of each geranium variety I had in the garden that summer.  I simply give each one a bath, trim them back to fit on my plant stand and settle them in for a winter's rest.  I water them enough to survive in the dry house air, and I take cutting off them in early fall when they're still growing to try and start more plants.  As winter progresses, I usually lose some of the geraniums. This winter, I only got a couple of cuttings to root but I kept all three of the mother plants alive!  One is a purple and white Martha Washington geranium, one is a fuschia ivy geranium and one is a classic white geranium.  They want to go outside...not yet!
