Geranium robertianum, is a common species of cranesbill. An annual or biennial with a small taproot that spreads widely via seeds, this is one of the weedy geraniums and can be invasive in a well-watered shady slope. Native to California and the northwestern United States. In my garden it is allowed to flourish. On my shady north-facing slope it’s a welcome sight come spring. Artist Georgia Gibbs captures images from the natural world. By bringing it into tight focus she invites the viewer to a more intimate relationship with the world underfoot.
