The common name for this flower, wind flower, is derived from the Greek word ánemos, which means wind. This wind flower, or anemone, has a history in Greek and Roman mythology. Aphrodite was in love with Adonis, and she kept him by her side past the curfew allowed by the Gods, thus triggering the vengeance of Persephone. Weeping for Adonis death, Aphrodite swore Adonis would live forever and this beautiful flower was born out of her tears. The flower in this image seems to stare forever, watching over everyone who appears in its presence.
