Wind Flower

The meaning of the anemone flower is "forsaken" and also "a dying hope". How depressing for such a beautiful flower!
It is also called the wind flower because it was believed that wind is what caused it to bloom.
In the New Testament, Jesus says that even “Solomon in all his glory is not arrayed” as beautifully as an anemone.
Although the traditional English translation (King James Version) is usually rendered as “lilies of the field”,
the original Greek κρινα (krina) is anemone!
