Beautiful. They look really different up close like this.

@ PJ - Spring is over! It's been in the 90's every day for a week! Yikes!

Vogon Poet said...

What colors and light, you inspired me. I have to ask my neighbor, she has lovely geraniums.

Great shot----hey, Spring is NOT over--it just started here. It's going to be 58 to 60 here today. Whew, a heat wave. I mean it!

I like your moon pics. I took some too. It is so beautiful.
I'mm back. MB

@ Small City Scene - Yep, spring is done here. When we got home from Disney on Sunday it was 97 degrees in Ocala! Aargh!

Bright red and lovely! Spring has just sprung here in the northland. The iris are just blooming, the apple and cherry trees are in full bloom.

I just took a sweater.It was getting a little chilly!!!!
And the Azaleas are just starting to bloom...
Beautiful and bright geraniums!

Jackie said...

Oh that's beautiful, and this has a real olde worlde picture postcard quality about it somehow. Lovely.

(of course, all the best blogs have flower close-ups today ;) ).

Jacob said...

@ Jackie - I like that "best blogs" bit! You're very astute and intelligent and observant!

Jacob said...

@ Leif Hagen - I can understand cloudy, overcast, cold - spent many years in Minneapolis and environs! Lois Anne's from St. Louis Park.

I use a Nikon D300, with a D70 backup; Lois just got a D40 (which beats a D70, D60 or D80 all to pieces at half the price!)...

Lovely photo Jacob, very vivid colours!

Lee Spangler said...

Jacob: Thanks for visiting my site and enjoying Bend, Oregon. Sorry no relation to anyone in Minneapolis. Amazing color and composition of the geraniums. I can almost smell them!

cieldequimper said...

Ah, thank you for reminding me that I need to get to the garden centre! They will never be as gorgeous as this!

I don't know why, but these flowers make me think of Hawaii :D

Thank you for your patience and for bearing with the technical problems on the website. Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow for more of the Keukenhof series!

Wonderful close-up. I over-winter our geraniums in the basement and bring them out to the patio in late April. They are leafing out nicely now, although it will be awhile before they bloom.

Great shot! Lovely clear colours!
