Herb Robert

Herb Robert \ 
Géranium de Robert \ 
(Geranium robertianum) ...

is one of my favourite wild flowers. Here in southern Ontario I have found it in bloom from May to December. Primary blooms are in the spring but it blooms, off and on, for the rest of the time until the snows come.

            Several years ago, when I took a foundations art course at a local art school, I did a special project on the Herb Robert. I made sketches, elaborate drawings, watercolours, a large acrylic painting (just over a metre on each side) and a wire sculpture of the Herb Robert as well as many photos. I am not sure where the photos are right now and my other pieces are in various locations but below are two more recent photos of the flower:
