One of my Nova Scotia Flower Scouts (an honorary title) called and emailed me yesterday. She wanted to alert me to the fact that I had not yet shared a photograph of Nova Scotia’s provincial flower, the Mayflower, which she could take me to if I wanted. As she rightly pointed out, we are a Province that is currently pulling together to get our latest pandemic numbers under control and we all need encouragement. Most of us have done our best to keep to the public health guidelines and for months – nearly a year – we have succeeded. I won’t go into the reasons for which we are now under siege, as I don’t like to play a blame game. I would much rather just focus on getting things back to our ‘normal’ here again and I think we are all working towards that goal. This flower is symbolic for 2 reasons. First, as I said, it is the provincial flower, which is a good reason to feature it. Second, this specimen is looking a little battered, a little the worse for wear, which is perhaps how we are all feeling. But it is still here, despite what it might have weathered. I am late finding and photographing this flower, but at least I have it here to send out to you all as a reminder, wherever you might be, that we will pull through this, despite what we might be going through.
