Geraniums Here- There - Everywhere

Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. My door is always open for you to come in, sit in the garden, relax and enjoy a cup of tea (if it is not too hot for tea in your area) My geraniums are on their second bloom and are blooming in the Southern California sunshine.
We have very little rain this time of year which allows me to display some of my art in the garden. I like to call it "Art In The Garden".
Pour yourself a cup of mint tea and sit in the morning shade.


"Art in the Garden"


Looks like Bentley my Studio Assistant prefers to stay in doors to enjoy the geraniums.


On of my favorite photos of Bentley that I wanted to share again with you.

Sit in the shade and enjoy the garden.
Another one of my favorite ways to display geraniums this time of the year.



More "Art In The Garden" on display among the geraniums.



Thank you for stopping by. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, and those who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

I will be on a Summer blog break for next several weeks and look forward to seeing you when I return. We will paint those pink roses I mentioned and have a lesson on painting a birdhouse Welcome sign.
Blessings, Erin

Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin

Hi, Erin,
I love to visit your garden. Each picture is more lovely than the one before. I am a "red" person, and I love your style. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Erin, ow, Geraniums are really my favorite summer annual, so colorful and hardy. They do really well in my area in the bright sun. Enjoy yours.

Geraniums are, by far, my favorite flowering plant. Just love them. I have one that is really "strutting it's stuff" this year. So full, big and pretty.

All yours look magnificent in your pretty garden.

Have a wonderful break..

Enjoy your rest! I can't wait to see new pictures of your art and garden when you return. I just got back from Alaska and the 21 hours of daylight makes for amazing flowers - especially the hanging baskets! Maria - Torrance, CA.

What a bright, happy, summery post. It made me feel good.
btw - do you think dogs appreciate the scent of flowers? Or is it something they dismiss as nothing to eat/no one I love/not another dog ? xx

Hi Erin,
I'm late so you're probably already off on your vacation. I LOVE geraniums and every winter I tell myself I'm going to have all kinds of red geraniums all over the place. When spring comes I end up with pink! Penny mentioned a rooster painting lesson...I don't remember you having one so I hope I didn't miss it. I'm really looking forward to your next painting lesson. The photo of your pup looks like he's smelling the flowers..he's so cute. I'll be watching for you when you get back. Take care. Maura :)

If there is one thing I love Erin thats geraniums. They come in so many colors, but the red ones always make the showy display. Just beautiful Erin!!
