Rain, I don’t mind. Shine, the world looks fine.

My favorite perennial, Geranium Roxanne, did not disappoint this spring. Prolific and drought tolerant, Roxy endured an unexpectedly harsh winter for the southern U.S. and graced our garden with style. She is one of the few plants in the yard that the resident wild rabbits find unappealing to the palate. Roxanne is a fighter, and I love her for taking a stand.

Title quote from the lyrics “Rain” by the Beatles, released in 1966

    1. Thank you, Tina. It blooms throughout the summer into the fall, and the color is the sweetest shade of periwinkle. I’ll bet it would adapt to the coastal atmosphere, beautifully!

  1. The Beatles always hit the nail on the head !
    Love the flower – with the raindrops on it – it’s hard to find blue flowers – apart from bluebell and ageratum… must try if it’s such a cooperative little plant…

  2. I had to laugh (scoff) when I read your post title as we are getting yet more rain on our tornado and flood torn communities.
    But I understand other’s need for the wet stuff and I am so happy your pretty little flowers survived the winter. They are beautiful as are your images of them – but if its all the same to you, I will continue to wrinkle my nose as the storm clouds that are still in my sky! πŸ˜‰

    1. You could not have made this girl happier today. And to think, the first record with backwards music in it, as told (and sung) by Ringo, himself. The Fabulous 4, indeed!

  3. Very pretty, both the shot and the geranium. Haven’t seen this particular color at any of the local nurseries though.

    Glad to see you back, Elisa.

  4. Hi, Elisa! What an interesting little flower and photo too. It looks as if it’s behind a glass and the second one is its reflection. A really interesting image! I need some of these little flowers. I’m going to check it out with Romero who also works for our nursery. πŸ™‚

  5. Song (BJ Thomas – Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head) to these beautiful blue flowers :
    Rain drops are falling on my head,
    They keep fallin’
    but there’s one thing
    I know
    The blues they send to me…..
