Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Forget-me-nots and dementia – 1

Posted on by royvickery |

Banner in St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, Witney, Oxfordshire.

The attached card reads:

‘Forget-me-nots [Myosotis sylvatica] are associated with Dementia.  They remind us to remember and support those who cannot remember for themselves.                             Dementia Oxfordshire is encouraging everyone to knit as many flowers as possible in the run up to Dementia Awareness week (15th May – 21st May).                                                            Thanks to everyone who has helped make this banner.’

(Although people are asked to knit flowers, most of the flowers appear to have been crocheted).
