Autumn Geranium Leaf

    The photo shows the autumn coloration of what I believe is a Cranesbill Geranium.  These plants grow like stink and have become a bit of a problem since they crowd everything else out.  Every year I rip mountains of them out of our one flower garden, and still they return.  I found this one growing out in our field.
    While I generally have a dislike for this plant, in the autumn I am always won over by the oranges and reds of its leaves, which are a colorful treat.  I just wish they didn’t make such a pest of themselves during the summer.
