  • Floral (and Butterfly!) Notes

    An old Native American tradition says that if a butterfly alights on your hand, whisper your wish to it then release it unharmed. The butterfly will carry your wish to the Great Spirit who, in gratitude for respecting the butterfly's freedom, will grant you your wish.

    'Meadow Brown' butterflies can be seen flying between the middle of June and late September.  Brown butterflies, in general, are said to symbolise new beginnings. In Western cultures, it is believed to be a good omen if one enters your home and a sign that good news will soon follow.

    Leucanthemum vulgare, commonly known as the ox-eye daisy, can be seen blooming on verges, wasteland and in meadows from spring to the autumn. The Ancient Greeks dedicated this wildflower to Artemis, the goddess of hunting, wild nature and the moon. Another of its common names is the 'moon daisy'. Ox-eye daisies are symbolic of hope and patience.

    The ox-eye daisy is the birthday flower for those born on 29th October.
