Forget Me Nots

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

  1. In my youth, I was a Girl Guide. In my troop, all the sixths were named after wildflowers and I was the lead of a sixth which was called…? Yup, you got it…Forget-me-nots! So, understandably, this sweet little flower is near and dear to my heart. But even if I did not have good memories associated with it, how could I not love this perky woodland beauty. And Ellie has done a marvelous job of capturing its colourful and mischievous nature. Thank you, Ellie, for a quick trip down memory lane.

    1. Oh yes, I remember the sixes! Was I in yours? I’m not sure I remember.
      Whatever the case I’m so glad you like my little collection that brought back those memories. Thanks Janet.

  2. They are lovely Ellie. It is so nice to go on a walk and come upon a large bouquet. The colour is so vibrant. Thanks hope you have a great day.
