When I saw your title and not the pic, I was wondering how you'd have one still alive. Then I scrolled down a bit! That second shot is really nice, I like the composition and the focus! :)

Such a sad, sad sight! A great photo, but a sad, sad sight. Thanks for capturing the mood of what some feel with the change of seasons.

Awww, poor geranium! It is still kinda pretty though. I like the muted vintagey colors of the dying blooms!
