Common Corn-cockle

You do not feel fundamentally lonely

Answer to the third of the thirty questions part of the Twijfel Zaaien/Casting Doubts project.

Latin name: Agrostemma githago
Artist family: Romantic
Colour: Blue

Where was this made?:

In nature, this plant can be found in fields, on roadsides and railway lines,
landfills and other disturbed areas. It doesn't grow in the forests and is almost never seen in gardens. This flower is a rebel, a nonconformist, a social outlaw. It feels fundamentally lonely through its life, but still seems to enjoy this loneliness more than anything else in the world.
