This is a series about the neighborhood flowers and flowering trees that I saw and enjoyed on my walk in the neighborhood during the stay at home months. Many of the flowers I don’t know much about and depend on Google lens to get a name. If there are mistakes, apologize for my ignorance.
I am sure nearly everyone of my readers will be identify this one. I have couple of varieties of this in my garden. This is the season that these bright colored flowers bloom in abundance. As I walk the streets of our neighborhood, I can some many varieties in peoples front yard and by the roadside. Though Google lens identifies these as Regal pelargonium, I always knew them as geraniums. Shows my knowledge about flowers. When I took this photo, the two flowers together reminded me of a fluttering butterfly just about to take flight. That was nearly three weeks back. When I look at it today, it still looks to me like a beautiful butterfly. Let me know what you think.
As you can see from the photo, it was a very bright day when I took the photo. Not an ideal lighting condition for taking a photo with a cell phone without much control on aperture , shutter speeds etc, However the flowers were so vibrant that with some trial and error I was successful in capturing the flowers in the foreground without blowing the highlights completely.
On a different note, after nearly a month and half, I went out hiking on Stiles Ranch Trails. Will write about that in another post. Have a nice weekend. I hope to go back to writing poems during the weekend, picking up this thread next Monday. Have a good weekend dear readers and stay safe.
Where are you heading
Spreading your wings to take flight
Rooted to the ground
You fill my heart with delight
