The first forget-me-not flower has appeared.
These remind me of my Mother because they came from her Auckland garden. This flower is a symbol of true love and memories. In a medieval legend, a knight and his lady were walking along the side of a river. He picked a posy of flowers, but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted “Forget-me-not”.
“This flower evokes fond memories
reminding us of absentees.”
