Little did I know that one longstanding Bermuda tradition is sending lilies to the Queen for Easter. The photo above shows Carlos Amaral and Ginny Ferson, Acting Governor, picking the Easter lilies at Mr. Amaral’s Devonshire farm (in Devonshire Parish, Bermuda). The Royal Gazette reports:
Ginny Ferson, the Acting Governor [of Bermuda], has taken part in the traditional gathering of a bouquet of Easter lilies for the Queen.
The lilies, grown by Carlos Amaral of Amaral Farms in Devonshire, were flown out on the British Airways flight on Tuesday, destined for the Queen at Windsor Castle. Sending the traditional Easter flowers to the Queen is a longstanding Bermuda tradition.
