I love the Mimosa and you struggle to find it in the UK.
In Italy, the Mimosa is the symbolic flower of International Women’s Day. This flower was chosen by the Italian Women’s Union for the first 8th March following the Second World War. They wanted to choose a flower that would symbolise the day, and it was these italian women that saw in the Mimosa the perfect representation of this day. Additionally, there was the added bonus that they flowered around the 8th March, which meant that it was an an inexpensive and abundant choice of flower to give to all the ladies!
Big love to all the women I know for this International Women’s Day!
