The colors of the Robson Valley landscape are becoming more and more subdued as things evolve into hues of browns and grays of winter. In one of our flower gardens, I did find these leaves of a Cranesbill geranium still showing off the reds, oranges, and yellow of autumn.
Cranesbill geraniums are pretty much a pest plant around here. They grow so vigorously that they overpower everything else, so you have to periodically pull them up to give the other plants a chance. Normally I tend to have a negative feeling about them, but this time of year it’s nice to have them around because they do provide some rare color when it is disappearing everywhere else.
