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!

  1. Love the lost and found edges of your plant. Hope the impending storm wont be too bad.

  2. I love gardening, and am a beginning artist! I love the sketch you did of the pelargonium aka annual geranium.

  3. Beautiful, Lin! I love the soft colors of the petals, too. The flowing pigments add another awesome dimension.

  4. These are beautiful! I'd love to have them in my garden. I love how you have captured not only the soft color of the flowers, but also all of the details and variations of the greens. Wonderful.

  5. I don't even like geraniums but you make them so vibrant I want to go out and buy some.
