My Beautiful Ballerina

I know .. I sound like one of those over zealous stage mothers promoting their kid .. don't you just hate that ? .. but hey .. this delicate little beauty is one tough as boots perennial geranium called "geranium cinereum Ballerina" and has survived one of the toughest spots in my garden .. all sun all heat all DRY .. oops .. yes, my short commings are many once the season starts snow balling .. This cutie has surprised me with its tenacity .. while other plants I thought would be fine, went ahead and pooped out on me ,this one smiles brightly almost every day .. it is a KEEPER !
