Another flower I used to hate, but now love. You are probably thinking- how can a person hate flowers? I'm not really sure but I think I was just a picky kid or something. I still hate geraniums, not only do I think they are ugly but the smell makes me want to punch someone in the face. Seriously.
On a lighter note, if you are ever in the Portland, Oregon area in August, you should check out the Swan Island Dahlia Farm- just acres and acres of beautiful flowers. I could wander around there for about 5 hours just taking pictures and marveling at nature.
