As a child living in the Town of Mount Royal, I remember that my mother loved petunias. I think I recall (I can never be sure that my young childhood memories are accurate) that they grew down the edge of our short driveway. Today’s Flower a Day is probably unlike any she grew, but every time I see a petunia I am reminded of her and what I think of as a generally happy period in my young life. Although my memories of childhood otherwise are mostly not good ones, it is important for me to keep these positive ones to remind myself that nothing is all bad. I hope that despite this difficult time we all find moments of joy and beauty to hold in our hearts and remember.
