The French National Flower?

The pretty red geranium in yesterday's blog post prompted a comment on my FB page from a friend in the States. She noted that whenever she sees photos of France there seem to be red geraniums in it 'Are they the French national flower?' she pondered. Well, no, they aren't, but you do see them everywhere in summer, usually like this...marching up stone steps to a pretty French farmhouse!

  1. I didn't know the French national flower is the iris. Thanks for that info. Nice pix of my house! Interestingly, that door in the 2nd photo no longer leads anywhere. At one point, the house was divided into two and had 2 separate entrances, of which that was one. However, it's now blocked up and there is a cupboard behind it!
