My post for today is inspired by a few challenges today firstly Cee’s photo challenge flower of the day. Also for City Sonnets photo a day challenge which today is solitude and color and letters which today is vivid pink. Tourmaline’s Color your world challenge of which this week is cotton candy.
My flower of the day for today is actually quite a common sight in the UK woodlands, hedgerows and coastal areas you will find it at ground level in shady spots. But until today I didn’t actually know what it was. It is Geranium Robertianum but has many names but it is commonly known as herb robert.
Although normally low lying the cover of the partially chopped down tree in the picture below was an ideal place for a little seed to grow into a flower at Martin Mere.
It is an edible flower/plant and it has been used for it’s healing properties.
