Simply Beautiful

Barking - Miniature pelargonium

I love this miniature pelargonium - the simple flowers are quite stunning and contrast beautifully with the dark leaves.  Barking is a miniature zonal pelargonium hybridised by Ray Bidwell and introduced in 1961.

Ray Bidwell lived in Suffolk and hybridised many miniature pelargoniums, mostly named after local villages.
He died in December 1989.
This morning Brian and I took advantage of the warm sunny weather and went to Winkworth Arboretum for a walk.  The skies were a clear blue and the trees looked stunning in their autumn colours.  Although we have had quite windy weather for the past couple of days, not all the leaves were down, and I got some good photographs.

We loved this carved seat.
