Behold Wild Columbine, also known as Red Columbine. Until I saw this, I had only seen the fancy cultivated kind, and had no idea there was a wild variety! Here is the cultived fancy kind I have snapped.
And here is the Wild Red that I just discovered! It was in someone's yard a few houses away.
Quite a difference, isn't there? Having five petals in the wild, the columbine flower was said to relate to foolishness because of its physical resemblance to a jester's five-pronged cap. Did you know the bible describes at least five kinds of fools?
