I WAS AT MY MOM'S YESTERDAY AND SOME OF HER HANGING PLANTS ARE FINISHED FLOWERING. I THINK THIS IS AN IVY GERANIUM WHOSE LEAVES ARE TURNING RED BECAUSE OUR NIGHTTIME TEMPERATURES HAVE DROPPED THIS PAST WEEK.
IF SOMEONE HAS A DIFFERENT ID PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

I think you are right and they are very pretty. My mother in law always takes her geraniums in for the winter. They go dormant and then she sets them back outside in the cpring.

Pam said...

Beautiful light in this shot! Makes the red really pop out. I have no idea why the leaves turn red, but it sure makes a good photo!

How beautiful ;--)
I don't think I've ever seen the edges of Ivy Geranium leaves turn red like this, but then it doesn't get very cold here at the beach in Southern California either. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs and blessings,

I don't know what the plant is, but at first I thought the leaves were flowers. They are beautiful!

Beautiful, the sunlight really brings out the colors.

I didn't buy any ivy geraniums this year, you make me wish I had now.

Ooops I thought I have left a comment last night. Nice to see the sunshine on the leaves makes the color float.

Tricia said...

I don't know flowers... except that it would be a very very dull world without them - so I couldn't tell you what flower it's from, but I just love the photo w/ the play of light & shadows, plus the turning of the leaves - it's all very pretty!
