A whisper on the wind claimed the chrysanthemum is a special meeting place for the wee folk. I don’t know if it’s true, but who am I to say nay?
This flower has been cultivated for centuries. The Chinese drink wine made from this flower to ensure long life. The original Japanese flag depicted a chrysanthemum with its 16 petals around a disc. Many flowers have meanings. The chrysanthemum means truth, fidelity, and love.
