Wednesday Vignette

This week's Wednesday Vignette is a recent photo of a hardy Geranium in my garden. I don't remember the name of it, but it was a gift from my friend Annette. It puts up tall stalks with clusters of big purple/blue flowers at the tips. I love the contrast in this shot between the small, hairy unopened buds and the open flower with its deep purple, almost black veins.

  1. Oh, that is beautiful - the contrast is phenomenal! The coloration with those dark veins reminds me of a Salpiglossis. Did you get a macro lens, Alison? That is a great photo!

  3. I like this detail of what I tend to just breeze by as a "common plant / flower". I am learning to look more at the tiny picture, and this is so cooling to my eyes.

  4. Geraniums have fascinating flowers when you get up close and personal.

  5. Fuzzy buds and a veined flower. Beautiful.

    Hardy Geraniums would be a cool season annual here, I know without trying. This is Pelargonium country.

  9. Allison, that is one gorgeous image! I love all the beautiful detail you captured from the veining to the stamens and pistil to the hairs (I LOVE hairy plants!). But it's your great composition and shallow depth of field that really makes the shot. Beautiful work!

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
