You have a large collection of white varieties. I should really drive to your place :). I only have the local one, spreading very well on its own.
Nice red on the oxalis.

Fons,

My wife is always happy to try something unusual in the garden. The colour of this image is very close to what I see.

Geranium phaeum one of a few sports that happened spontaneously, probably hybridizing the original maroon red with a white variety. The colour is a greyish blue purple, nothing more difficult than photographing true colours when it comes to flowers, especially in the magenta purple spectrum.

Very nice color, Lars. I'm looking for colors like that but so far, only light blue specimens have survived more than a year or two in the garden.

Thanks Bruno - the color is not quite honest due to white balance in dim evening light. As I remember the color is to the bluish-pink side in daylight. They will soon be blooming again and I'll try to remember to take a shot.
