Travels in Spain, Terracotta and Geraniums

IMG_5056

“And thank God for home-sweet things, a green and friendly hill,
And red geraniums aflame upon my window sill.” – Martha Haskell Clark

Two pictures taken in the village of Bárcena Mayor in Cantabria in the far north of Spain.  In Green Spain in the rain and the mist the geraniums are not quite so extravagant as in sun-burnt south, they do not bloom so freely but they have a rustic elegance nevertheless!

  6. Red geraniums decorate our back porch throughout the spring, summer and fall. Only winter stops their cheerful blooming. Like the shot of the window, Andrew. –Curt
