"These flowers are like the pleasures of the world." ~W. Shakespeare

There appear to be many legends surrounding the Windflower. The word "Anemone" comes from the Greek 'Anemos'- wind. It was believed that only the wind could open their petals. Another belief claimed the name was given because the flowers are so fragile, they wither at the touch of the first wind. In ancient Rome, it symbolized the tears of Venus over the death of her lover Adonis. Even today botanists see the Anemone as nature's barometer, since its sensitivity to the dampness in the air causes the petals to curl over, often right before rain.
