"The expanse of green was
relieved here and there by clumps of geraniums, blossoming gorgeously in
great variety." Poe
"Everything is handsome about
the geranium." Leigh Hunt
"This little flower, poor
Robin, is here, constantly, courting my attention."
"...standing at intervals
along the winding path that led to the sea stood painted vases with looped
garlands of petunia and scarlet geraniums."
