Goodnight Flower

This is some sort of Polygala, and I was guessing myrtifolia until I started looking online and saw one called Polygala x dalmaisiana that also looks like this. Maybe a reader can help me. In any case, it is surely a Polygala. A common name is sweet pea bush. No matter the name, I find it quite lovely.

Goodnight Flower

Some of these images were done quite some time ago and have been waiting to get their goodnight flower moment. Some no longer appeal to me as much as they did when I first made them, while others have improved with time. In some instances (and this is one of them) I think I’d like to go back and rework an image. For now, though it will stand as is: I’m tired and I hear a pillow calling my name.

I tend to confuse geraniums and pelargoniums and I have to look them up frequently. I believe this is the Geranium x magnificum, also called the Purple Cranesbill. Having again looked things up I’m certain it is a Geranium and not a Pelargonium,

Oh, and talk about confusing, get this: the Pelargonium’s common name is geranium, while the Geranium’s common name is cranesbill. Oh … but the Pelargonium  also has the common name storksbills … or pelargonium.

Yeah, it leaves me scratching my head!
