Like A Pink Havana Cigar

Geranium Flower buds that look like roses, with the petals rolled up like a Havana Cigar. These will look good next to the Busy Lizzy Carousel who has two flowers now in bloom.
I rescued another Chilli Plant from work, joining the three I have grown, and the other rescue plant I got. Five Chilli plants are growing now....
Just finished first night shift of three, expect short posts between sleep.

Hi david, can't believe you managed to stay awake long enough to do your blog before going to bed considering you had to go baci to work this morning to get your flat keys!!!
The picture of the geranium is lovely.

You have a talent for photography. The organization of color on your page is amazing. Was the brown, purple, pink, seafoam blue and coral colors planned? They have a calming effect on me. I am asking all gardeners with passion for their art to check out my book "Diary of a Wannabe Gardener" at Amazon.com I think you will relate to the humor and passion of my main character. The book is more than just a read it is an experience. Check it out and keep the pictures flowing they are great

Nice photo! I kept the background of my blog in subdued colors - since I post bright colours as well in my blog. Love the geranium photo, mine are still going well. Are you working in the medical field having work nights? Kind regards, Andrea

Great shot! I have never seen geranium blooms in that way.

The Petals are only just unfolding Lisa.If you look they are wrapped up like xmas presents to start and began to unfold the layers.When they are still tightly curled they look like roses :)
