A Progression of Blooms

This ivy geranium is actually a hot flamingo pink, though it looks very red in these photos. The blooms are quite different from the other geraniums, and they seem to politely take turns, all buds waiting patiently for their time in the sun.

  1. Nancy, I so enjoy visiting you. You have a way of making the small seem magnificent. You have quite a talent. I hope the storms didn’t do any damage and just brought you rain and a respite from the heat.

  2. Nancy, thank you for your comment on my sky watch.)
    This is a very “polite” Geranium waiting for its queue to open one flower after the other. I do love geraniums!)
    I see on your side photos, your cute grandson is growing up, it goes so quickly doesn’t it.

  3. Whatever color they are, they are beautiful! And I’ve been meaning to say that your new photos of your grandson are so cute. He has your eyes, by the way.

  4. these are doing and looking beautiful Nancy. I’m still waiting for mine to bloom. One of the plants finally has buds. I only have 2 this year: one pink and one red. Good thing these handle the frost because we had another killer frost the other night.

  5. I’ve got a canna lily that’s a watermelon pink that does the same thing in photos. Regardless, your brilliant “red” blooms are wonderful to look at. I find red very soothing for some reason. So thank you!

  6. I really like the way you viewed the geraniums. The pictures are very good with a totally different perspective than usual.

  7. I agree with Sharon – your perspective makes these very common flowers seem like something new. Sometimes I enjoy the buds even more than the open blooms of some plants. The buds of the Pelargonium are in that category.

  8. Your photography goes to the limit! I just got a new camera yesterday! I have not really tried it, but you inspire me!
