I’m a big fan of hardy geraniums and keep promising myself the luxury of a post to share some of the pictures I have gathered of them. The trouble is, they are so rarely labelled. I think this dainty beauty is G. x oxonianum ‘Lace Time’ (or similar). It’s hard to be certain as there are so many named varieties of these hardy geraniums, and often considerable colour variation even within the same clump, as you see.
Setting the difficulties of identification aside, I like the contrast between the flowers in this little cluster. The one on the right looks particularly radiant.
I’m linking in to Cee’s Flower of the Day. Cee hosts several challenges and has kindly offered to maintain a list of challenges hosted by other members of the WordPress community (including pictures, writing prompts and music) in an bid to plug the gap left by The Daily Post. If you host a challenge, fancy taking part in any of them, or if you miss reading some of the posts written in response to the prompts, check out her For The Love Of Challenges page.
