Geranium

Flower sales -- don't you love them?! I saw these pots of geraniums at a sale the other day and they so reminded me of all the geraniums I saw in Italy, I just had to have a couple.

Right now they sit on my front porch --but next weekend, I'll find a permanent home for them.

In my region, they're treated as an annual, so I'll have to find new ones next year. I bought these more orange flowers rather than the bright crimson ... I seem to be more into 'soft' colors this spring.

We're in for a storm today and tomorrow so all my plants will get a good drink ...

Stay safe!

Beautiful, Oh Lin, now it's time to buy some of those geranium plants. I will try the market to see whats been delivered.

Have a great day and stay dry. We are having a cold rainy day here on L.I.

All the best to you,
Joan

I love the runny leaves and the softness to some of them. Great job!

It doesn't feel like spring here to day. Hope your day is super.

So realistic yet a bit impressionistic at the same time -- perfect! I have always thought of geraniums as an annual but I know people who, even in Vermont, hang them up to dry in the winter and then plant them again next spring. They were one of my mother's favorites but I didn't like the smell!! I suppose that smell keeps some pests away??? Anyway, I've grown to like them but from afar!!
Big hugs,
Lorraine
