  10. Thank you for coming by my blog earlier:) This geranium is beautiful! Had no idea there were geraniums other than the common ones. Zion and Bryce Canyon have stolen my heart - I want to go back again!

    1. Thanks for dropping by :-)) Yes, there are many varieties of Geranium.

      I've visited Zion twice but only once to Bryce. I'm hoping to go there again next year, along with several other National Parks in the Utah area, such as Canyonlands, Arches, Antelope Canyon and Grand Staircase-Escalente.

  13. I like the coloured veins on these, shots like this really make you notice the colours and shapes in plants.
