Wild Flowers Of Strathclyde Park
flower has long been associated with love. A German knight walking with
his beloved leaned over a river bank to pick a bunch of flowers when he
over-balanced and fell in. Weighed down by his heavy armour he drowned while
imploring his lover Vergisz mein nicht - forget me not! In France
it became ne m'obliez pas and aimez-moi (love me). During
the Middle Ages a lover would wear the flower as a symbol of his/her fidelity.
