forget-me-nots

really, how could i forget forget-me-nots when they are all around the house and all over the yard? this clump was found blooming by the house's granite foundation, yards and yards from the nearest garden, which must be where they came from. and look - see the fly?

I first thought it was touch me not, but it is a good reminder of that. Thanks

Hello, I just like to share that in my country that flower is called in Filipino term 'MAKAHIYA' here, they just grew every where most especially in grassy areas. Nice to know a person like you, who actually appreciates small details around you. Nice one! :) Good day! :)

When I finished Year 6 (the last year of primary school here) I gave my teacher (a nun) a cup and saucer with forget-me-nots on it. That was the first time I had ever heard of those cute little flowers.

you know these forget-me-nots remind me of the touch-me-nots, which used to grow on my backyard...i miss my home...i miss my backyard!!

Yes, that is what I will plant next year...this year? I had forgotten how prolific they become.

Perhaps the fly loved them so much, but didn't want to have to travel so far to see them, so he (she?) relocated them closer to home!

These are growing in my garden and my husband said he didn't plant them. Now I know what they are. Easy to grow and prolific. My kind of flower.
