Friday Bliss #40 - Blue Beauties

Despite varying weather, a lot is happening in the garden this week, too. 
Maybe you can help me in identifying this dark purple geranium?
I think it is Geranium magnificum - Tarhakurjenpolvi, but it might also be 
Geranium himalayense - Idänkurjenpolvi. But which, I don’t know for sure. 
I have several of these and this one in a sunny spot is the first to bloom.

I went sightseeing near home. Visited once again the artist community around Lake Tuusula. 
Our much respected national writer Aleksis Kivi  died in this tiny cottage 1872.
His Seven Brothers is the first significant novel written in Finnish.

Other plant joys of the week 24:

This summer I have been a bit lazy in making bouquets for the terrace,
but here a sunny one in contrasting colours.
