Season’s First Coming home from work this afternoon I spotted this single Pencilled Cranes-bill Geranium versicolor, the first of the season, and just had to takes its picture.

Last property we owned, we inherited Geranium maderense (pink form) and they were big and showy, amazing plants. I planted our (small mounding) native hybrid “Pink Spice” which is really gorgeous and looks like you can get it in the UK – I found a lovely picture here https://www.dobbies.com/products/plants/cottage-garden-plants/geranium-x-antipodeum-pink-spice/ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you, Liz 🙂 Those are such sweet geraniums you shared on the link, thank you 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Really beautiful!

The purple do not flower for long, just through June, but these will now flower until the autumn. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Super Pete!
