Our Lady's Thimble

Campanula rotundifolia. Bluebell. Harebell. Our Lady's Thimble.

The Legend: The bell-shaped flowers, resembling tiny thimbles, were named after the Virgin Mary to honor her working hands as she made Jesus' clothes, including the seamless robe He was wearing when He was crucified.
