Wild Geranium
Geranium erianthum

These purplish-blue flowers are very common in Alaska, we saw them everywhere on our 2-week trip. The long, pointed fruits of the Geranium are interesting, the 5 seeds are located in small cups until they ripen. When the fruits mature they split from the bottom to the top point, throwing the seeds away from the plant. The mosquitoes just about ate me alive as I made this picture outside our bed and breakfast in Wasilla!
