These little flowers opened up yesterday. The woman who gave the plants to me called them "hardy geraniums," but I haven't been able to figure out exactly what that means. A quick Google search didn't turn up anything that looked quite like these, but I plan to poke around a little bit more to see what I can find.
I credit most, if not all, of my photography success with the quality of my camera. When I download the photos to my computer I'm always surprised by the amount of detail that is there - more than I notice with my naked eye.
I love the close and thoughtful study that this allows me to do. A moment frozen in time.
Update: I found out that it is a "Biokovo Karmina Cranesbill" Geranium, which are native to the Biokovo Mountain region in Croatia.
