Forget Me Not-125/365

Right at the top of the Frisbee playing part of the garden I found a tiny patch of these lovely flowers. There are only a few of them and they are much smaller and more delicate than I remember from seeing Forget Me Nots in the past. I remember them being tall and rather hairy looking. I love the way these have buds of pale mauve (which do have little hairs on them) that turn into pale pink flowers and then these become blue. So you see the full spectrum in the sprig.

Incidentally, I forgot to wear my bug shirt in my haste to get out and was bitten by a black fly. Note to self: Do not forget the bug shirt in the future!

  1. Thanks very much +Marilou Aballe 

    +Ursula Klepper – yes, it's here at last, though going down to 6 degrees again on the weekend. 🙁 . The fly bit is a bit swollen, and bled a lot, the way they do. But not too serious. It has taught me to put my bug shirt on, without fail. Thanks Ursula.

    Thanks so much +Bette Kauffman – yes, almost hairless, except that the leaves and buds have some. I'm glad you liked it.

    Thank you very much +Paul Brown – it's Joni's favourite colour, too! 😉

    +Sumit Sen – thanks a lot.

    We did, didn't we, +Karin Nelson and then today so did +Steven Kennard with his heart shaped offering. They are everywhere and every one's a winner. 😀

    +Mike Goodwin :o)

    Thanks, +Sharon Keizer 

    Yes, truly, the tiniest ones hold the most beautiful delicacy of detail. Thanks, +Rosemary Grieve

  2. So beautiful this tiny little ones, you captured them so well! I am glad spring has finally exploded in all corners of your garden. I hope it's not too bad with the flight bite!
