Thank you David. Called "Eyrar-ros" = in Icelandic or "River Rose" in English translation. One of my favorite native flowers up here in cold Iceland.

Before I even read the caption I knew it was Iceland! Taking photos of the breathtaking scenery was the highlight of my trip in 2009!
This was a geranium I shot there, not as impressive without the mountain!

Thank you all, and Sue, thanks for the beautiful photo of the geranium. they are common here, I especially love their leaves in fall, when they turn red, orange and yellow. David, yes we have roses here, Some of them are extremely hardy, but the problem here is that winters are usually rather mild with unstable weather which is bad for the roots and the summers are cold in comparison with what you are used to. Here is a pic of an Icelandic rose named "Skotta"
