The first of many  forget- me- nots

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book . Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God, They cannot be numbered.

Psalm 139 : 16-17
Forget – me – nots bloom from early spring to late summer.  These were from the garden this morning. It has taken a year for them to grow to maturity and flower for us today.
Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget- me-nots of the angels.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
In 1883 Radford started to operate at a china works in Fenton. It stayed in the family until 1931 when it kept its name but was owned by Norman W. Elliott. Manufacturing stopped in 1955. Notice the painted forget-me-not flowers on the side of the cup.

The blue and bright – eyed floweret of the brook,

Hope’s gentle gem,

the sweet

Forget-me- not

Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
Forget- me – nots symbolise respect and true love.

There is something inspiring and sublime about the little

forget-me-not flower. 

I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your life joyful and sweet.

Dieter F. Uchtdorf
