A little excursion: The flower is a columbine. Yes, the now-icky name of the high school in Colorado where a massacre took place several years ago. It hasn't made the flower any less lovely, though, or strange. It's so Alien! Very Giger, and click here to see what I'm talking about.
Another excursion: In the enchanting movie King of Hearts, the beautiful love interest played by Geneviève Bujold is named Coquelicot. But in the English subtitles, her name is translated to Columbine. Yet, coquelicot is actually a poppy. Why wouldn't she want to be called Poppy?
