Happy birthday Carol !

By GeorgePlatis
This is a special upload for Carol (CarolG) and her birthday. My best wishes to you, Carol!

Concerning the flower it is a pelargonium. Pelargonium is the name of a genus of flowering plants that includes 200 species, commonly known as geraniums, although geranium is a different genus of related plants. Pelargonium species are evergreen perennials from South Africa but they are popular all over the world especially in eastern Mediterranean basin and of course in Greece. Blossoms are colorful and in great variety of shades. This is from my garden.

Thank you all for your votes and your comments in my last upload! All are much appreciated!
