Geraniums and pelagoniums represent comfort and healing, and symbolise friendships.
There association with healing and comfort go back to an 11th century monk who discovered the healing properties of the juice of the wild geranium, the Cransebill.
These are a perfect flower to include in a painting to celebrate marriage, friendship, and anniversaries.
Their colourful mass of flower heads revive memories of days spent with friends and loved ones in summer garden gatherings.
