  3. Are these like geraniums or begonias? I am not good with flowers, naming them or growing them, but I like painting them. This one is simply lovely.

    1. Penny, my dictionary says they are geraniums. They are very common flowers here and we have them in pots in the rooms and outside in summer time. It is pleasant to paint flowers. Thank you for liking my geranium:)

  8. I agree with Lynn, you have such a range of pink shades and it looks great. I find that really difficult but you have mastered it!!
