A Barrel Full of Summer


“Annette looked at the geraniums, very red against the blue sky. ‘No matter how I try, I cannot find any thread of such a red. My bleeding hearts drip stuff muddy in comparison.’”

~Amy Lowell, “The Basket” in Sword Blades and Poppy Seeds


We’re going to the East Coast for a few days, so I’ll be back next Tuesday.

    I have lilac and pink geranium but the red are prominent in Switzerland, especially near the Alps.
    Hope you have a great time.

    – and you got the red right, too :O)

  3. That is a great red. I think I like these flowers better than roses. So much more approachable.
    Enjoy your trip!

    • Thanks, Jackie! It’s just a quick trip to visit family, so I won’t be taking photos.

      Geraniums turn into shrubbery out here because they last all year. I like them contained like this.
