TRAILING GERANIUM FLOWER - PINKTOBER 13

Because I have still been coughing quite a lot, I decided not to go to Church this morning, but was going to go round and see Mum, as I hadn’t seen her since last Sunday.  However, when Mr. HCB had gone off to Church and I rang her, she said she would rather I didn’t go, as she didn’t want to risk getting my cold.

Having a morning to myself, and being thoroughly fed up with the rain, I wondered what I would Blip today.  The rain stopped briefly, so I took the chance to go out into the garden and was rather disappointed that there weren’t that many pink flowers about.  However, I then spotted this beautiful trailing geranium, but as I went to move it slightly to take a better shot, it broke off in my hand.

I couldn’t leave it out there, so decided to bring it indoors and when I looked at it, there were still lots of raindrops on it, so I quickly found some background material (one of my fleeces) and fired off a few shots, which I was very pleased with.

So here is a rain-sodden pink trailing geranium, which fits the bill for BCAM, not purchased from an upmarket garden centre, where they charge the earth, but from Morrison’s - and then planted and nurtured by Mr. HCB.  I couldn’t make up my mind which shot I preferred, so have put my second favourite in as an extra.
