Hi Rob, Probably Geranium homeanum, as I can see in the 3rd photo that the hairs on the stems are strongly appressed to the stem, not at right angles to it (solanderi) or slightly backward pointing (gardneri).

Hi Jackie, I've added a photo that shows the hairs on the stems a bit more clearly

OK, thanks. Now I am inclining more towards gardneri. It usually grows more in open sunny areas and homeanum in shadier spots like gullies. But I wouldn't swear to either of them. Geranium is a difficult genus even with them in the hand.

It was in a sunny spot just up from a gully.
