Today's Flowers #55: Geranium

Geraniums are so colorful and so much a representative of summer. In the Northeast of the US, we buy them in the late spring and they come into full bloom in the summer but eventually are killed by the frost. Sometimes, we try to bring them into the house to prolong their life. We do not see too much of them in Taiwan, maybe it is too hot.

But in California, the geraniums grow so nice and big. They are probably never killed off during the winter months. These pictures were taken during my trip to Point Reyes Station at Marine County, north of San Francisco early this month.

I took photos also of my geraniums, but decided to do a post on some yellow flowers. I'll save the geranium shots for the winter when we need cheering up!!

I love geraniums. The scneted ones are great for their fragrance too. Beautiful shots.

I love geraniums and these flowers are lucky here in CA, they don't get "frost bite".
P.S. I love your macros on your camera critters post. Great shot!

Beautiful Geraniums!
I'm afraid my dog Bogart and I are not good with flower names! We are both doing pink flowers today!

These are beautiful indeed! They are my favorite flower because they are so easy to grow. When I lived in Virginia I would sometimes have them until Christmas.

Geraniums are such forgiving flowers. I like that they are so drought tolerant!

I always plant geraniums in our garden but treat them as annuals.
Great shots!!

This is really a delightful flower! So easy to handle - and so beautiful!
