    1.  a rather trashed looking oxalis

    2.  hardy geranium

    Much appreciated!
    1. I'm afraid I don't know why it looks trashed. Lack of water?
    2. I think it may be Geranium himalayense 'Gravetye'.
    Once again. All your replies have really helped me to hopefully nurture my garden.

    I'd say the oxalis was drought-stricken.  Makes for a great flower display though!

    Looks more like my geranium magnificum  rather than gravetye.

    Thanks josusa47. It has been a long time that we haven't had rain. I'll know how to take better care of it from now on.:)
    Thanks Hazyb. It certainly does. I'll have a closer look tomorrow and check the height.:)

    Hi. The geranium is 55 to 60 cm high so I guess it is the geranium magnificum. The petals are quite dark-veined too. A close up: -
    Plenty of rain over the last couple of days which should help the oxalis :).
    Thanks again.
