I have geraniums outside my front door, they cheer me up both coming and going. I know geraniums are ordinary and maybe even boring, but they never fail to make me smile.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Geraniums may be ordinary, but you turned them into a work of art. Perfect color choice for the background, it really adds a punch to that coral color of the flower.

  • Thanks, Christine, for your thoughtful and kind comment!
