Do You Have a Favourite Flower?
My mother used to love sunflowers. We are a spiritualist family and the sunflower is a symbol of the Spiritualist Church. But she also just thought they were beautiful. So when she died, you couldn't move for them.
Four years ago, my dad decided he wanted to grow some, just for Mum. Being the cynical person that I USED to be, I assumed it would go wrong for some reason and that they wouldn't grow. Boy, was I wrong.
They were huge! Dad had planted all kinds of different ones but the one shown in the photo was my favourite.
When the time was right, we placed them on Mum's grave. And even though I'm not really one for flowers, I thought they looked wonderful.
