The reflection of British wildflowers in emotions.
Verbena officinalis. Visionary.
In late summer, the plant Verbena bears slender spikes of tiny pale violet or white flowers. Common Vervain is an old medicinal plant. Derived from an old Cletic word meaning 'to drive away the stone', it illustrates the use in the treatment of kidney stones. The ancient Egyptians and Romans used it as an altar herb, especially as a symbol of the goddess Isis and also as an amulet of protection.
The visionary Joan of Arc first had visions when she was twelve. At least two other people saw the same visible figures of saints and angels which she could see and touch. She saw St. Catherine, St. Margaret and Archangel Michael, occasionally Gabriel and large hosts of angels on some occasions. They directed her to go to France and end the suffering her people had endured.
