Today's Flowers-Christmas Cheer Red, Red Geranium

I just love geraniums, especially red, red geraniums. These were on my front porch all summer until the first frost. I so miss their cheery color.

They do look festive. I have never considered them a Christmas flower but they have the color!

Red geraniums are very pretty flowers!

Geraniums are interesting in that the flowers last for such a long time. In California where my Mom and Dad lives, they seem to be going on strong in the winters too.

Lovely indeed!
I used to grow them in my old house. This past summer I didn't; but I will next year. Down there in Chesapeake I used to have them many times until Christmas.
Love these against the brick.

My neighbors on both sides had red geraniums this year. They are cheery plants!

So pretty. Geraniums almost always grace my deck, but for some reason I have never thought to photograph them. I'll have to rectify that next summer!

Your red Geranium is homely and beautiful. Geraniums emphasize all that is warm and friendly. In Europe the houses are festooned with Geraniums growing from baskets and pots. I grow them in my garden.

Red Geranium is flower that I too like very much. Unfortunately I didn't manage to grow any of it this year. This photo is beautiful and attractive with those beautiful little flowers against the background of red bricks.

Hello! Your Red Geranium is beautiful. I see why they would cheer you up :0) Thanks for your visit to my post...

Hannah said...

I love geraniums too. I was told that you have to buy new ones every year because they are annuals and don't come back. Well I took mine and put it in the basement all winter, didn't water but maybe twice. Brought it out in the spring and it bloomed twice as big as the year before!

This is picture is beautiful!

They do look so welcoming, don't they? Happy Holidays,

The frost takes no prisoners. That's what makes a flower in the house in winter such a splash of life. It's a revolt on the inside against Jack Frost on the outside.

I LOVE geraniums. They are pretty and almost impossible to kill. LOL

Susie of Arabia said...
