Green Thumb Sunday


Widow's Walk

I picked up this geranium at our town's garden club plant sale. It's known as Mourning Widow or Phaeum, a rather grim moniker indeed. Though when compared to its cheery, window-box cousins, this one does seem a bit more serious.

It is so beautiful...but I don't like it's name!

I enjoyed visiting your blog. That is an unusual geranium. Mourning Widow seems a fitting name for this dark beauty.
