Power Poppy July Release ~ Day 2



Hello friends!!  It's Day 2 of our Power Poppy Release and we have a beautiful Geranium digital image to share with you today.  I admit, I am used to seeing and growing red geraniums, but I thought I would google them and see if there weren't any other varieties.  I was pleased to see a Salmon Colored image so I went with that.  I also used the image as a reference for the leaves, because some geraniums have a distinct leaf color pattern.  The sentiment doesn't come with this release....I cheated and included it a day early....shhhhhh  I just thought the font style fit beautifully with this image.  I realize geraniums aren't the "wildest" of flowers, but hey....even us simple folks can bloom wildly....right?  ;)

Your framing is so absolutely fabulous, Tosh! Bet you made those boards yourself, didn't you? I'm a little bit awed by how you do that. Beautiful job on those leaves and love the color of the blooms.
