Perhaps it's an exaggeration to claim there are fifty shades of pink in our garden, but I'm sure there are far more than the nine geranium specimens which I snapped yesterday for the set of images below. We have more geraniums than this, but they are not in flower at the moment. I've always been fond of pink. For a while when I was a teenager in the 1950s, pink shirts and black bobtail ties were all the go for fashionable heterosexual young men. Iridescent orange or green socks were also compulsory for a while.
Pink rules - OK!
Geraniums have to rank amongst our favourite garden plants. I've had some feedback that my 11 November, 2012 entry about buying more of them from the Geranium & Pelargonium Society of Western Australia was re-mentioned and much appreciated amongst the membership. I'm pleased to report that all the cuttings Jill and I acquired at their sale have taken root and are showing new growth.
