giving thanks...

Colors are the smiles of nature.
Leigh Hunt


...for candy-striped geraniums


...for a petunia's purple majesty


...for raspberry-petticoated azaleas


... and trumpets of apricot and gold.

Such wonderful photos of these beautiful flowers, Leslie.
I love the way you have so many "giving thanks" posts grouped together. They're all so very special.

Beautiful, les. My favorite is the candy-striped geranium. I've not seen any like that. I'd love to have those in my containers on my front porch in summer. Great pics. :)
