Geranium

Flower Fest

This is my First One Stroke Painting combined with a little Water Coloring with Acrylics. This is my contribution to the Flower Fest - The A - Z of Flowers for the Letter G.



This is a Picture of a Geranium.

Geranium can be:

  • The genus Geranium of flowering plants, usually called the cranesbills or (somewhat redundantly) "hardy geraniums".
  • Members of the related genus Pelargonium, which are commonly called geraniums by gardeners and in the horticultural trade.

This confusing situation arises because Pelargoniums were formerly classified in genus Geranium. The two genera are closely related, and both belong to the family Geraniaceae.

"Florists' geraniums are hybrid varieties of the S African genus Pelargonium."

I got the above Information from Wikipedia.

Mythreyee, what a wonderful entry to the Flower Fest! I love the 'one strokes'! I used to watch a painter on PBS do similar painting but on glass and ceramic. I hope you will continue to participate from here on!

Hi Mythreyee,

I was looking for beautiful rose pictures online and incidentally hit your blog. Really marvellous gallery. I took copies of some flowers including your profile rose pic :).

I was mesmerized by the way you, Manisha and Jaya are maintaining these blogs. Keep the momentum. These blogs truly reflect your interests & hobbies. I'll be visiting your blogs to find more. You people do good work.
