Geranium macrorrhizum, Rock Crane’s-Bill

This Geranium Macrorrhizum, Rock Crane’s-Bill reminds me of a bird in flight, legs dangling before landing. Or a pretty dancer, legs twirling below a floating skirt. Geraniums are not new to me, but this particular variety was and I have no idea where I photographed it. Just a pretty pink flower for you for today’s enjoyment, as I wish a lovely day for you all. A Flower a Day #309  (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers posted, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-)

  1. I like your descriptions, Ellie, but at first glance, I thought of jellyfish floating up in an aquarium (the only way I get to see jellyfish from this angle). They pump to propel themselves upwards and then release themselves to sink, often with trailing tentacles. If they’re not performing ballet on stage, they could be performing ballet underwater…a glorious sight wherever they are found. Thank you, Ellie, for another special PFD.

    1. That sounds a good visual image, too, Janet. Why not? Medusa came to mind when I read your words. Which is of course jellyfish, too (French word for it). And a ballet anywhere indeed! Thanks again.

  2. Lovely Little flower Ellie. Wonderful color. Unique how the stamen pops out from the bud before it opens. Thanks again for sharing and we can see intricate details that we would normally not see by just standing and looking down at the flower.
