Default Forget-Me-Nots

I've always been intrigued with this flower, but I've never grown it myself unitl this year, when I started a few seeds in a small pot, hanging over my sunflower barrel.

The shade of blue is indescribable! These pictures can't capture how beautiful the flowers are.

Or how much they mean to me.

I also LOVE flowers that are truly "blue" (as opposed to bluish-purple), but haven't had much luck in the past with "Forget-Me-Nots" - both the annual & perennial types. Like Lobelias - another wonderful "true" blue flowering plant - FMN's don't seem to care much for summer's heat & humidity, regardless of how diligent one waters.

Yours are lovely - I'm envious!!!

Those are just lovely, Lee. And a wonderful tribute to those we want to remember.

My wife calls them weeds. I personally like them and even bought my mom an Forget Me Not English bone china tea cup, saucer, and plate back in the 60's which I have now. I had a neighbor I didn't care for and planted 3 packs of seeds around their house - they never figured it out.

I love those little flowers. When they start to flower, it tells me that the summer has begun. They grow here as wild, every corner of my garden.



In my language their name is "lemmikki" = darling.
