Birthday Girl

My photo today is of the Regal Pelargonium Birthday Girl - perhaps inspired because I have just had a birthday over the weekend!  
Birthday Girl
I have to admit I am not a great fan of Regal Pelargoniums, but this one caught my eye when I visited The National Collection of Pelargoniums at Fibrex Nursery earlier this year. The flowers are a very pretty delicate pink with ruffled petals and a paler throat.  The plant is short jointed and has a compact growth.   Hybridised by Mr Geoff Morf of Australia and introduced in 1968.

After a dull and fairly wet August, this week looks to be set fair.  We have high pressure over the country and it has been quite warm today.  The nights are, however, turning chilly and I have been turning the heated propagators on over night.

Noticed the poorly butterfly with bent wings has disappeared.  I hope it has managed to fly away, but I doubt it.

I would love to hear your comments about my "ramblings".
