Welcoming June with Flowers

May has slipped by ever so quickly and June is upon us.June is the month of roses and also the last month of my school year.This means 22 more days of bus driving in this school year.

I do not have roses in this post,but I do have a number of pretty flowers to share with you.
Each of these pictures show a flower or flowers that are currently blooming on my yard.
This first one is a Martha Washington Geranium.

Not a flower,but close-up of one of the Geranium leaves.


Another flower on the Martha Washington Geranium plant.I really like the brush strokes of color on these flowers.


Lastly I have a few pictures of  a pot of small Begonias.

The above color and the next one are in one pot and actually look quite nice together. I don't think I would have put these two colors together,but that is the way I bought them and it seems to work.

A second pot has the redder flowers.I like these plants,because they are so full of flowers that the leaves are barely visible.

Closing Thought:
Trying to find the words to describe nature's beauty is like trying to measure the moon with a yardstick.

These are gorgeous! I never knew that geraniums could be so beautiful. Usually, they are not one of my favorite flowers. But you have changed my mind!

I love begonias, too, Ruth. And your Martha Washington geraniums are really pretty. I like those "brush strokes" of color myself.

Pretty....
I have always liked the geranium scent. And mix it with dried rose petals and I like it even more, making a potpourri.
