Good Things

I went for a walk with my friend A yesterday afternoon. It's becoming a bit of a Sunday tradition. I picked this geranium for its intense red colour. Thankfully I spotted the home owner just as I turned back to reach over her fence! After asking permission I was encouraged to take a cutting as well as the flower.

I'm interested in how the red deepens almost to black in the centre of the petals. In the light of all my yarn flower brooches, I'd also like to take a closer look at the shape of the petals and how they are formed. Not that I'm going to make a realistic flower, but it's always good to study the real thing.
