Flowering plants are among the greatest pleasures of life.
There's such an immense variety that it astounds.
Each flower, in itself, is like a perfect work of art, from the tiniest forget-me-nots to large, splashy hydrangeas.
Last weekend I drove to a farmer's market. Because grocery shopping had already been done, there was no need to buy any food for the body.
What I wanted was food for the soul----flowers----and there were plenty at the market.
It was hard to decide which flowers to buy. I settled on three kinds of dahlias as some of the gifts for my hubs on Father's Day as well as a snappy electric pink geranium.
Granted, there were pale pinks and bright reds but the flashy, splashy vibrant pink one drew me right to it.
That was the one I wanted to grace our front porch.
The geranium is so bright it almost makes one's eyes squint. It's a brilliant neon pink.
The lady selling it said it was the mother lode, the plant that made all the other geraniums that were for sale.
He planted the new dazzler in a big pot near our front porch.
There she sits in all her shocking pink beauty and it makes me happy when I see her!
