Love in the Mist by miraries

Love in the Mist

“A mighty pain to love it is,
And 'tis a pain that pain to miss;
But of all pains, the greatest pain
It is to love, but love in vain."
Abraham Cowley

This flower which is also called Nigella Damascena in one of those annuals grown in a cottage garden & the popular name for it is to signify confusion in love and unrequited love.
