Flowerscapes- A tiny flower from backyard



When I open my door I get the sight of a garden full of tiny colorful flowers and a green lawn. Instead of going out in search of subjects I thought of clicking macro shots in my backyard itself. I tried many different angles and I liked this one the most. It is Himalayan Geranium, a perennial plant and is beautiful with blue petals, white centre and the deep dark veins! Also called as Lilac Cranesbill, grows in California too!

  6. I think I'm familiar with this one. I believe it visited me in the garden once. Do they grow as wildflowers?

    1. I don't think it grows as a wildflower because it is not native. Good you too have seen it!

    1. Thank you Anuradha. Well, from internet obviously! I had taken a free course from CA State Parks on IDing wildflowers, that helps a bit.
