My first memory of engaging with flowers was when we lived above our green grocer shop in Earlwood. We had a strip of yard falling away to the back for our own veggies. I was 3 or 4 and pumpkin flower took my interest. It might have been zucchini. Understanding it wasn't to be picked, I got down and stuck my nose in to smell. My youthful explorations earned me a stung by a bee on the eyelid. Not an auspicious introduction to horticulture but maybe a boy doing that sort of thing only had one calling anyway.
