An Old Family Friend

Since I have been a child the porch in this house has always been full with these lovely flowers. These are an other flower that should have a staring role in the Flowers of Childhood series. As I grew up my grandparents always had a spectacular display of them, some of the plants are even still sitting on the shelves today.


I think the fact I have grown up surrounded with them means they are a flower that is very special to me and also conjure up some extremely happy memories of my childhood and the time I spent with my grandparents.

But there is a big debate about what to call them. I have grown up calling them geraniums but to be fully correct they should be called Pelargonium. So I am interested to see what you call them?!
