Lovely flower. The geranium flowers are really good this year.

Glad you like it, Shirley!

It would appear that you are right, Lindak, as most Geraniums I've seen this year are growing very well indeed! Perhaps due to the warmer & drier weather? Perhaps caused by climate change? Perhaps we will be growing even more of them in the future as this sort of weather is "right up their street!"

You can get a lot of variations of colours with the geraniums now Balcony. They do well in the flowerbeds and the pots. You're right about them liking warmer weather as they don't like the wet do they.

I think I've grown Geraniums for the last 60 years or more! Certainly I haven't been without them for the last 40! I used to grow them on the balconies of the different flats we lived in during the last 19 years we spent in Spain as well as the 21 that have passed since we returned to the UK!
