Cranesbill/ Macro Monday

One of a zillion blossoms on a cranesbill geranium in my garden

This is Geranium 'Samobor' - each bloom about 3/4 inch across.

Totally fabulous. My cranesbill doesn't look like that, but then again, my camera lens doesn't do macros that close.

PERBS said...

That is a super macro -- just so elegant! AND to think it is all yours! You grow beautiful flowers.

I like the Cranesbill geranium. I have pink one, the wild one (invasive, but I like it) and a pretty blue one that I forgot it's name. (Johnson Blue)

I heard you twisted your ankle--I hope all is well--you saved the camera though--thank goodness. Ha!!!

Tee hee, MB.

Yes, My ankle is swollen and I've had to keep my foot up. (It swells when I sit at my computer too long.) So I've been "forced" to read a couple of books without feeling guilty. No, I did NOT twist my ankle on purpose...but I admit there has been at least one benefit.

I knew it was a Geranium the minute I saw it there is so much detail in there! Lovey one you've posted at that I have never seen this kind!
