Owl in Columbines


Owl sculpure in the garden

Garden Owl sculpture carved in High Moor Sandstone sits amongst the newly blooming Columbines.  Perhaps I should call them Aquilegia, as they are a garden cultivar in yellow,  with purple-green foliage.

In the language of flowers (symbolism originating mostly in the Victorian era) Yellow Columbines bring positive energy, including friendship and happiness.

The Celts on the other hand spoke of the flowers opening doorways into other worlds (perhaps due to hallucinating after eating the seeds and roots!)

It is favoured flower for pollinators, butterflies and bees enjoy the early flowering and also the Hawk Moth.

I love this moment, after carving, when a sculpture can just sit, surrounded by the season it was born into.
