FOTD – August 2 – Red Geranium

Still the middle of Winter Down Under and we have been having some unbelievably gorgeous days. (We reached a top of 25 degrees C today!) So much so that flowers i would not expect to see until Spring or that i have had blooming since last summer are all coming out to show off their finery.

Case in point: A red geranium flower. There are already 3 or 4 stems with bunches of these bright red flowers on this one pot plant, but this one came out on the latest stem showing the way for 3 of his siblings while another 5 or 10 green buds await their turn to ‘rise and shine’ behind them. 🙂

    • Wow! That would be an awesome sight! 🙂

      I think my parents have had red geraniums in their garden for almost 50 years now. A few die off but they always kept growing new ones from cuttings off existing bushes.

      • You have to remember that I was maybe 4 or 5 years old, so it probably looked bigger than reality! But I’m sure it reached the top of a nearby door! I had some friends who made cuttings and put them in 1″ pots each summer — they took them to Washington State, where they are fairly rare, and sold them for a dollar apiece!

  1. It has been quite remarkably ‘mild’ for an Aussie winter so far, nowhere more so than here in WA.

    I suspect global warming will see to it that this Winter is not a ‘one-off’.

    While i’m sure the conditions suited you well, personally i don’t think you got to see Aus at it’s shining best.

    Spring or Autumn brings out this country’s true beauty; Summer, it’s harsher but more stereotypical nature, which does indeed take some getting used to and some may find it just too much?
