Sharing pictures of Geranium mascatense, commonly known as Black Eyed Geranium from Muscat, Oman.
These were seen by me after a few showers, in the first week of March,2010.
Not seen through out the year and in the very hot months.
This was seen growing on the rocks, very close to a beach.
Identified from birdsoman.com from their Flower gallery.
Excellent pictures
