On This Day in 1909, White Narcissi and Purple Fritillaria

On this day in 1909, my Great Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Wiseman, Suffragette aged 53, was arrested in London having thrown stones to break windows. Subsequently she was imprisoned in Holloway, went on hunger strike, was force fed and was awarded the Suffragette Portcullis Brooch in recognition of her courage.

My Suffragette garden has lots of white but the purple Tulips are lagging behind.

Some Narcissi

I shall have to move some of the Fritillaria to the front as they do flower at the same time as the Narcissi.

Fritillaria

Done!

If you would like to read about a Suffragette’s life in Holloway, the Diary of a Suffragette makes very interesting reading. Click on the red link. https://wordpress.com/stats/insights/suffragettediary.wordpress.com
