Round-leaved Crane's-bill

Following on from the previous post on Little Mouse-ear, I had another spot of luck yesterday and stumbled across a thriving colony of another West Yorkshire rarity - Round-leaved Crane's-bill (Geranium rotundifolium). This species is distinct from the other commonly encountered annual crane's-bill in that the petals are entire and not notched. Thirty-five plants were found at the base of a wall on Fleet Lane, Oulton (VC63).
