      I have these in my front flower pot. I love the color and the flower itself. It is different.

      a poem about geraniums would be difficult

      hmmm…let’s see…

      there once was a pot with a geranium,
      that caused thankful thoughts in my cranium,
      I enjoyed its sweet color,
      it’s soft, pretty petals,
      should be cheered and lauded in a stadium..

      hahahahahaha, it was the best I could come up with …

      Sarah: rhyming “geranium” and “cranium”.
      Genius. Sheer genius!
      A.M.: Wishing my geraniums in Austin were holding up to this heat like yours are! Great shot.

      Good job on your poem Sarah. I love geraniums, but afraid mine aren’t holding up well this year.

    8. The G-Ma says:

      Well, that first got sent by a ghost. How about this:

      She cherished her mauvish geranium
      ‘Til it suffered a zap of titanium.
      Soon it withered and died,
      as she dithered and cried,
      “O grief, please be brief, I’m insanium!”

      That is awesome! I wish I had a prize for you! ~AM

      I’d have said I thought geraniums
      Were practical, unassuming flowers,
      and might be embarrassed by flattery.

      Until I saw *this* geranium,
      Which looks like it would nod politely
      And take a compliment as its due.

      Fantastically charming and wise! ~AM

      Ahem … (embarrassed at poem but here goes)”

      Stately geraniums
      With a scent most unique
      Stand guarding patios faithfully
      All through the week.
      They don’t demand much
      Just some water and some sun
      But the benefits they offer
      Provide beauty & gardening fun!

      (bows & makes hurried exit)

      Scent most unique indeed! I love it! ~AM

      I still have not planted my geraniums (10 of them…and they were kinda expensive) that I bought this spring….summer’s gonna be gone.

    12. The Bug says:

      My husband always winters his geraniums – we’ve had the same crew for several years. You can see them on my blog from last month.

      I’ll have to ponder a poem about them – that would make a great blog post! I only have a poem about zinnias…

      One of my favorites! Anything red – pure joy to my eyes. Make it a flower in sun, I’m doing cartwheels.

    14. Diane Jennings says:

      Lovely macro shot of the geranium, but one reason there aren’t more poems about geraniums may be that it’s a bit difficult to find anything that rhymes with “geranium”. ;-/

      pressing summer heat
      on velvet petals
      geranium bliss
