March & April 2022 in the churchyard
Springtime flowers in St Mary’s churchyard
Wild Daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus)
Bright, joyful, and resilient – it’s no wonder the Marie Curie logo is the distinctive daffodil. Poking up after a long winter gloom, the daffodils symbolises rebirth and strength after difficult times. Captured in Wordsworth’s famous poetry, it’s hard to not feel an unmistakable optimism when you wander across ‘a host, of golden daffodils.’
Wood forget-me-not(Myosotis sylvatica)
The common name says it all. The forget-me-not’s delicate but eye-catching blue petal symbolises memories and true love. A fuss-free plant to grow, this wildflower fittingly has been adopted by the Alzheimer’s society forget-me-not appeal which takes place across June to raise awareness and support for those affected by dementia.
