And a very nice combination I have to say.
Focusing is clear as a bell  ;)

How long does that Geranium flower for with you Malcolm?

Lovely geranium, Malcolm. It is very a nice colour and has a pretty veined effect.

Just been down the garden, Malcolm, and found we have a geranium in flower too. I am afraid it is nothing exotic but just what we call a wild geranium but I still think it is an attractive plant.

I asked Lyn, she said not long, I did suggest cutting it down after flowering to see if it comes back with another show of flower, Lyn said it wouldn't. Unless somebody knows differently.  :-\

I asked because I have a very nice blue geranium (much like the one posted by Eric H) . It flowers in profusion, but lasts a very short time. Thereafter, I have to look at a clump of untidy leaves for the rest of summer.
In actual fact, its right against my front wall, and I used to wonder what it went flat! Then I discovered my dog standing on the platform, "talking" over the wall to one of our neighbours   ::)

Didn't I read in another thread recently that Eric (palustirs) has said he cuts them back and gets another flush of leaves and flowers?
I will try that this year (so far doggie hasn't flattened it)
Incidentally, both your Geraniums are a week and more ahead of mine. No flowers on that one yet.
