Flower of Geranium









My family gave me a digital camera for Christmas and because I feel there's something unsatisfactory about photographing plain white snow (which is usually outside in the cold) I searched indoors for something more colorful.

I have a tendency to bring a few plants inside if they survive summer. This little geranium thing sported a blossom while resting on the edge of the bathtub. (I use the shower.)

You'll notice the 'shadow' of the plant reflects on the white tile across the tub.

And in case Lucy Petals is reading: This may be silly, but I'm posting it anyway.

Thanks to Skittles at Heads or Tails -for her prompt: Flower

I try taking pictures of my plants, too - but they don't turn out so well. This is really nice, and I love the reflection in the tile.

Cool effects! I know it's cold outside, but the snow can have some pretty cool effects too. Enjoy your new camera! I'm jealous. lol

I see Lucy hasn't been here yet. :P

I had to giggle a bit when you said "if" they survive the summer. The key is to water them... LOL!

The reflection is awesome!

I don't think it possible for you to post anything silly.
Always a delight.

It still gets dark too early, and we're supposed to get even more snow ... I can't tell you what a welcome sight your geranium photo is on a day like this!
