just geraniums


i love geraniums. they may be my favorite flower.


and this is the last plucky little bloom to survive
the wilting heat and humidity of florida's summer months.


i thought it deserved some recognition...

geraniae! oi.
of course my very own red queen appreciates them to bits, and so the very sight does make me trip back in time.
i try to like them.
the one thing that is difficult about their true selves, i find, is their poignant smell. they make my nose twitch.
besides ALL that... you're so thoughtful to highlight their brightness as such!

Ooo... sweet geramium moment, Leslie! We had a big pot with pale pink geraniums this summer--they're holding on. ;o) Funnily enough, I'm posting about geraniums today from a weekend trip we took recently. Geraniums are such happy flowers, I think. Hope you are well... Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

I too love geraniums, but for some reason they don't grow well here :(

I love them too... I used to have several varieties of scented geraniums. I love to put the leaves in teas.
