  • Floral Notes

    In Greek mythology, the poppy is dedicated to the goddess of agriculture, Demeter. An ancient legend tells that when Demeter's daughter, Persephone, was carried away to the Underworld by Hades, she searched high and low for her but to no avail. Exhausted, she climbed Mount Etna and rested upon a rock where she wept inconsolably. After nine days and nine nights, the gods took pity on her. They transformed the ground around her into a sea of flame-red poppies that at last lulled Demeter into a restful sleep.

     Poppies are the birth flower for the month of August and red poppies are also the birthday flower for those born on 10th May. They symbolise consolation, love, comfort and remembrance.
