The leaves have an acrid mousy smell, and the name probably derives from an ancient association with the house goblin, Robin Goodfellow.

Very lovely photo, Peter! Thank you! So funny, I have photographed a Geranium robertianum as well yesterday. Its smell is rather unpleasant as you mentioned, but this herb and its root are used against many ailments as well. best wishes, May

Thanks May

We must remember to take a shot later in the year when those leaves turn to a lovely red!

Best Wishes Peter
