Eco Print on Silk, Cranesbill Geraniums and their Metaphysics


Eco Print on Silk Habotai 8

Eco Print on Silk Habotai 8. The bright yellow leaf print is from a pink-flowered Cranesbill Geranium in my garden.

Pink Flower, Cranesbill Geranium

Pink Flower, Cranesbill Geranium. Note the amazing pattern of growth ‘veins’ in the petals and the tiny deep pink ‘flower’ in the middle surrounded by its yellow-green exploding halo, which looks like a Jacobean collar, surrounding the head of the tiny deep pink flower in the middle. This is actually the flower’s ‘bill’, a ‘beak’ containing the flower’s one seed, which the bill spits, at its appropriate trigger, into the wide world. The five petals are therefore, protection for the flower’s seed pod. There’s a metaphysical level of meaning here, folks!

      The photo of the geranium is not contemporary. I have rows of them in my garden; but I can say that they are flowering in my garden still, now, November 2016, which is extraordinary.
