Maybe this is quite a common geranium but I'd never seen one this colour before (it is this colour, not doctored!)
They were being given away as freebies by Minehead Council as they had too many last year.
The colour is (to me, anyway) very amazing! Better viewed 'large' if you have time.
Courtesy of EPZ-er 'Mars' who managed to get some of these plants last year and pass them on. Thanks, M!

The colour is rather amazing.....I don't think I have seen such a rich ruby coloured geranium as this before. And how well you have captured it. For me, it's V 1 today also.

Two great captures of a very beautiful geranium, Dave. Good on Minehead giving something away free, don't think you would find that in many other places, if any. Carol
