Geranium pretense. Generous.
The thick stem of the robust plant Geranium produces a beautiful blue flower but droops before and after flowering. Often called Meadow Cranesbill, the seeds of this numerous-rooted plant are dispersed by mammals, birds or water. Some of the common Geranium leaves release a fragrant scent when crushed.
Generous with its flower heads, the Geranium unfurls another bud as each flower dies off to produce a seed—rather like a furry mammal, which produces numerous offspring to populate the area. In days of old, the mother was the symbol of a generous nature, equipped with sustaining milk. From the early history of Rome, sons of the god Mars, Romulus and Remus were abandoned in the wild. A she-wolf took pity on the helpless babies and fed them her milk. Hence, milk is associated with a generous nature.
Proverb: Genius is an infinite capacity for taking pains.
