If you travel through Canton Ticino in Switzerland during summer time, you can see plenty of beautiful Red Geraniums, almost in every window box.
In order to stand up the higher temperatures (and the heat) in this southern part of Switzerland, Hybrid Red Geraniums (as shown in the photo) are used for this purpose.
They are characteristic with velvet green leaves and deeply red flowers.

Red for flowers is my favorite colour, have in my garden the same Gerraniums with the same colour.
Composition and presentation are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

nice the decoration of the red Geraniums in the pots in front of the windows.I like the created light and shadows as the excellent presentation of this tight frame.

Those red stingers are powerful to brings this image alive capturing attention instantly within the tight window opennings. A pin sharp capture in wonderful lighting, detail & textures. A lovely shot well presented, Congrats.

There is just enough symmetry breaking to make the photo especially interesting. The color of the geraniums against the dark interior comprise a wonderful combination, especially framed in a gray rough textured frame.
Warm regards and have a good weekend,

Red stunning color, under light, Miro, while the dark side window provided nice background.
Simple and yet a charming view.

I didn't realize you were going to be away for so long, but I'm glad you were able to find some free time and service to check back in here for a spell. :) Oh Ticino, what a terrific canton indeed...might just be my favorite. Hard to say for sure though, there are just too many to choose from. :)) This is one of the small, seemingly mundane type of things, that unless seen on a large scale, most people don't take notice...and yet, it contributes so much to the fabric of society in many, many European towns. Seeing this picture reminds me of one of my own in a very similar regard, and once I post what I already have lined up, it will now be next in line based on this inspiration. Sometimes it just the simple things that make for the most interesting results. Very well done. Enjoy the new week. Take good care.

Bonjour, cher Miro,
La version large occupe tout mon écran, c'est agréable, j'ai l'impression d'avoir une fenêtre joliment décorée de géraniums.
Très bonne idée de sujet.
Très bonne journée.

Red geraniums at the sun, a Summer capture geometric, very similar at the ones in Argentina, my father arrived to have more than 34 different colors of the very decorative flower
Thanks for remembering the game, over till 2018

Belle lumière sur ces jardinières de fleurs de couleurs vives, je trouve la présentation très belle, mais je n'aime pas l'odeur de ces fleurs :-)

A delightful and minimalistic image of the twin geraniums. They contrast so beautifully with the neutral colours of the stonework. Excellent sharpness and good light management.

very beautiful image using the black background of the window contrasting with the flowers. when I visited this area it was really very usual to find such flowers at each window. nice job.
