Notes

"BLUE ANEMONE; botanically, the English name of this plant is "liverwort", or "hepatica". It blooms in early spring, at least in Sweden. The turning of the seasons, and especially the coming of spring, and how long it takes, are common themes in children songs." -Leif Stensson at Project Runeberg
