This week’s Wildflower Wednesday featured flower is Columbine.
Columbine is native to North America; it blooms in the spring and can be found in open woodlands.
It is one of the first plants to provide nectar in the spring for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
There are more than 60 species of Columbine, some have flowers that point down, and others point upwards.
In the language of flowers, Columbine represents strength, wisdom, and peace.
In Celtic culture, the flowers were supposed to open the door to the other world.
