It’s the first day of winter and although we are not expecting snow here we have had some very welcome rain showers. Was a great opportunity to capture some raindrops on petals. They remind me of one of my favorite quotes.
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
Technically it’s still Winter in Northern California but that doesn’t seem to be hindering the geraniums. They keep producing buds and blooms at regular intervals from their rather shady spot in the garden. Here are a few samples.
The Salmon Pink Geranium in my garden is not very big nor is it a prolific bloomer which is no surprise considering how little water it gets during the drought but every now and then it blooms and it’s wonderful to watch it emerge.
A few Society Garlic blooms have appeared in the garden and their long delicate stems dance gracefully in the wind. In another spot in the garden however the salmon pink and white-edged Geraniums continue to bloom barely responding to the wind.
Geraniums are often overlooked as being ordinary and common. However I find that upon closer inspection every flower has unique beauty to offer. This little cluster is currently blooming in the garden.
