This enchating little pelargonium is called Bali Sunrise and I hope it brings a little sunshine to all of you who are suffering with rain, rain and more rain throughout this appalling summer. We are lucky here in Crete, having had no rain for over four months now, but the garden is beginning to suffer, and would welcome a day or so of rain to freshen everything up.
