One from the summer - Herb Robert

I have taken a few pics of this plant but have only just identified it as Herb Robert or Geranium robertianum



Famous apparently for its healing powers and a beautiful wee plant

Greg

It's pretty but it doesn't half smell.

Nice picture.

Thank you From what I have read it apparently smells like burning tyres, if the stems are crushed, and it keeps mosquitoes away

Greg, I love this shot.
I love how your eye is drawn up the stem to the focal point of the tiny flower.
Wish I had taken this one.
