ABC Wednesday

G is for...
geranium



One of my all-time favorite flowers--easy to grow, cheerful and domestic-looking. I like red ones the best. This year I took one pot inside for the winter and it has been lovely to have living red blooms when outside all is cold and dormant.

For more gorgeous Gs, visit here.

Geraniums are beautiful and the color is gorgeous.

This geranium has a lovely, lovely color! So cheery. And, I even like their fragrance even though it's not sweet.

Good photo, good "G."

I have red ones like these on my patio right outside my window. they are such a cheerful color on a wet, grey day like we are having today.

Ah..Geraniums one of my favorites.

Soon we can start them up, just now they are hibernating in the cellar.

Take Care

I so agree with you - geraniums have a lovely bittersweet fragrance that I find very pleasant. Lovely photo!

What a great idea for 'G' I was sitting in my study yesterday thinking how happy my potted geranium made me feel as it flowered away all through the winter.

That's a very beautiful shot. I may try my hand at geraniums this summer.

My favs are the red ones too. I like how you captured your flower with the light. Very pretty.

I didn't see you last week. What a pretty red geranium! I love that you saved one thru the winter. You are the coolest!
