It seems that with so many of us in either full or partial (or emerging) lockdown. the volunteer flowers (my new term for a weed) have decided to come out in unusual abundance wherever they can. It’s almost as if they feel they can contribute in some way to lessen our feelings of isolation, bringing a smile or a gasp of delight as we look out the window and see them (I’m talking about you, dandelions) or on a lonely walk in the woods or even on the lawn. We have always had forget-me-nots, I’ve even photographed them in the past. But then I remember having to seek them out, that they weren’t everywhere. This year, there are so many of them that they have taken over (almost) from the ajuga – see my previous post about the Bee and Bugle where I speak about how prolific they are this year. This is a happy observation, never a complaint, I assure you. Except that I find that I can get little done as I am always on my knees taking photographs of whatever I find. I hope that today’s flower (with the raindrop tear seeming to make the flower name more poignant) brings you a happy memory of someone you love, perhaps someone you haven’t seen in a long time. Till tomorrow, friends, hugs to all. A flower a Day #262
