This wild flower was photographed growing between the limestone blocks used to construct Dun Aengus Stone Fort on Inishmore (or Arainn) – the largest of the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, Ireland.

Its full common name is “Bloody Cranesbill”. This derives, not from the pink flowers, but from the leaves that turn red in Autumn. Its botanical name is “Geranium Sanguineum”. It is quite a rare wild flower in Ireland as a whole because of its preference for alkaline soil, which it finds in plenty on Inishmore.

The Aran Islands have a limestone geology and hence share many of their wild flowers with the nearby Burren region in County Clare on the Irish mainland.

This photograph is part of my postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .

    Beautiful shot, George! That pop of colour – the tiny point of nature in all that concrete is great. Well seen and photographed!

  • Damienne,
    Thank you. The stones in the background are actually naturally occurring limestone, rather than concrete …. but yes whether man-made or natural it provided a strong contrasting background for the flower. George
