I posted this on the Identification forum with no response... guess I should have tried the experts first...

These two I grew last year from mixed seed.
First has made a large mound about two feet high. This close shot of a flower is much less pink than the actual flower as my camera doesn't seem to like daylight.

Second plant has large palmate deeply cut leaves. The flowers are a much deeper shade of pink than the photo suggests.

The texture and shape of the leaves suggests a plant related to the 'mid-Atlantic' Geraniums, but smaller. Current height ~ 8".

cinemike your first geranium is an oxonianum, similar to claridge druce but would be impossible to give the hybrid name really as they cross so readily.

the second one is Geranium Palmatum, a half hardy geranium from Madeira :)

Thanks. (I had thought that the first might be a sylvaticum after a visit to your cottage garden seeds site...)
