|Columbine and Bleeding Heart|
The name Columbine in Latin means dove. You can see how the flower got its name - don't the petals look like doves in flight. Others have used the dove image to compare Columbine to the Holy Spirit. For this reason, the flower is often seen in medieval paintings. Personally, Columbine always reminds me of the story of Columbine and Pierrot, not as aesthetic as the dove image, but very romantic.
A little flower with a lot of meaning.
Have a wonderful day!!
