Geranium & bullrush

Oil on canvas, 8" x 10"

The wild geranium is far different than the bright red garden variety popular in porch pots.  I spotted this one while hiking up Long’s peak, and was entertained by how the plant was working it’s way around logs on the forest floor.  The small grass spike is in the bullrush genus, although it is not the typical, large cattail variety that is most common in the Typha genus.
