Sheltered Bloom



My pink geranium has begun to bloom.

One of the perks of living here is the amount of sunshine 
we get, even through the winter months. 
I carry my geraniums in for the season 
and place them in south facing windows. 

They graciously reward me with lovely flowers.

    1. I'm kinda fond of it, but the view from my husband's studio (which is the structure in the photo) is even better. It faces the mountains. Now THAT's a view! ;-) Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment.

  7. SO lovely, I've never had any luck over-wintering mine unless they survive on their own outside... Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #63!

  9. I brought in several plants to overwinter this year -- they will perk up around March when the sun starts to move abit. Lovely color on this geranium. I'm glad you saved it. :)
