hardy geranium (2)

This lovely hardy geranium is blooming in my garden. Since I didn’t plant it I do not know what variety is, but possibly ‘Dilys‘ with lovely purple-veined magenta pink flowers

  1. What a stunner 🙂

      I love the hardy ones, so many different colours and shades and they are tough little guys.

    This is glorious, Jude.

      Lovely colour – I seem to have inherited several hardy geraniums which is great because I love them!

      Thanks DJ – not the Olly, but I have been taking some with it this weekend 🙂

    We have this one too, but don’t ask me what it is! Happy Monday 🙂 You’ll be watching your man shortly.

    1. Heyjude says:

      So many of them and so similar! But who cares – they are all beautiful. And even flower in the shade 🙂

  7. So gorgeous! Great macro, Jude. 🙂

      Thanks Sylvia, not as sharp as I’d like, but didn’t have the macro lens available as the Olympus had to go in for repairs.

    Oh I do love a hardy geranium, they just give and give!

    Jude I have never seen anything like this. Such gorgeous patterns the veins make and a vibrant contrast.

    1. Heyjude says:

      There are so many different colours Sue and all so lovely. Some of the flowers are tiny so go unnoticed until you really get close up.

  10. Stunning colours – just what I need to see today Perth is uncharacteristically wet and grey!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Well, I could feel sorry for you, but… 😉

      1. I know Jude I really mustn’t complain and it is nice to have a contrast in seasons. We really have had a proper “winter” this year – my heavy duty winter gear has been on permanent rotation. Today is fine but very chilly – 12 degrees max or thereabouts and a bitter wind from the south. Have got the heating on full blast!

          I’m sure my Kiwi D-i-L is loving it! She nearly died in the 40 degree February heat. Mindst you she was 7 months pregnant at the time which wouldn’t have helped.

        2. She will be enjoying this weather very much! I was talking to a Kiwi yesterday who was commenting on how cold it was. 40 degree heat is no fun least of all when you are 7 months pregnant. We did have an extreme spell of hot weather then – only about 4 days of around 40 degrees but it seemed like an eternity at the time!
