Heralding the beginning of Spring, Chatham Island Forget-Me-Not flowers produce abundant baby blue flowers, bringing cheer after Winter. Far from forgettable, these majestic plants are endemic to the Chatham Islands, and can be found putting on a show in gardens all around New Zealand.
Spring is that magical time of year when the earth renews itself in beautiful botanical colour and fragrance. Tiny seeds that have waited in anticipation finally burst open with new growth, blossoms blooming and leaves unfurling. My golden seed is a perfect little vessel, full of hope for new beginnings.
