Some Interesting Facts, History and Folklore About Bluebells...

Led Astray By Pixies Forever... or Until Someone "Rescues" Him or Her.

For Me... These Flowers Symbolise The Loving Kindness And Generosity Of True Friends In My Time Of Great Need... As Well As The Natural Power Of Spring, As A Time Of Regeneration And Renewal. When I was Indeed "Lost". Was Grieving Hard Over My Loss Of My Beloved 4th Husband John who Died A Very Bad Death from Lung Cancer and Complications Caused By His Prescribed Medical Treatments on 06 Aug 2016. A little over 2 Months Since He Died At Home, In My Arms.

This Photo Was Taken 18 Oct 2016... One Day Before My 60th Birthday. While Visiting My New Friends Marta And Her Family In Their Home At Oberon for a "Few Days". Whom I Met Through A "Random Act Of Kindness" I Performed for the Daughter Of A Friend Of Theirs. Whom I Did Not Know and Still Haven't Met. They Unexpectedly Opened Up Their Hearts And Home To Me, At Such A Critical Time In My Life. Were Exceptionally Kind and Generous To Me. So That I Would Not Have To Spend My 60th Birthday ALONE. Synchronicity And Karma "Playing Together" To Wish Me A "Happy Birthday". A "Turning Point" I Saw No Reason To Celebrate Then, and Still Don't. BUT... I Can't Ignore All Of The "Significant Moments" During That Healing Sabbatical. I AM GRATEFUL For Marta and Her Family's Loving Kindness and Friendship.

Funny All The Coincidental "Ties" I SEE Associated With This Flower And That Terrible Time Of My Life... When I Certainly Did Need To Be "Rescued". If They Hadn't Cared Enough To HELP Me Then... I don't Know Where I Would Be Now. Probably Dead Or Homeless. BLESS THEM!!!
