|Glue disappears when dry|

It is probably kinder to myself to show my efforts before the 'reference' pictures of the real things.
These geraniums are made from a kit sold by D & K Enterprises. I have already said what a great vendor they are. This kit contains enough geraniums to last a lifetime unless you are creating a garden centre. Better still, for me, it has instructions.
I tried to do exactly as I was told and here is number one geranium. Already I am coming to the conclusion that flowers at this scale rely on the overall shape and the leaf shape to get an impression of the variety. A lot of them will comprise of bunches of petals one way or another.
I was happy enough with that one to make another four and stagger the heights to get a feel for how they will look in a group. I think they will do fine.
I am happy to settle for plain, simple pots of geraniums.
I also noticed doing this that the blooms actually don't have leaves that close to the flower so I will make some with leaves lower down and some with no leaves and arrange them according to their height in the pot.
