A colorful Wreath

The note was placed amid a colorful wreath for the late monarch that Buckingham Palace said contained, at Charles’s request, rosemary, English Oak and myrtle, which had been cut from a plant grown from myrtle used in Elizabeth’s wedding bouquet.

There were also gold, pink, burgundy and white flowers cut from the gardens of royal residences.

” . . . myrtle, which had been cut from a plant grown from myrtle used in Elizabeth’s wedding bouquet.” – How wonderful is that!:

The wreath contains myrtle, the ancient symbol of a happy marriage, cut from a plant that was grown from a sprig of myrtle in the Queen’s wedding bouquet in 1947.
