Wild geraniums

In late April I noticed that the wild geranium section had multiplied since last year. This transplanted wildflower was a solid mass of green leaves.

I couldn’t wait for them to start blooming because I imagined a crowded sea of pinkish-purple flowers.

A month later, that proved true. One afternoon, I couldn’t seem to stop taking photos.
